Default Mt. Diablo Flowers and Photos: Mary Bowerman Trail

The .7 of mile Mary Bowerman Trail is near the top of Mt. Diablo (lower parking lot). It has many flowers in bloom and was most inviting for photography (except for the wind in sections).

A friend had recently found three species of Calochortus and also Lewisia in bloom a few days earlier. We didn't find the Lewisia and saw only two Calochortus species but had a good time all the same. Highlights were the Mt. Diablo Fairy Lantern, Mariposa Tulips, Common Broom-rape, Whispering Bells, Red Larkspur, Wind Poppy and Chinese Houses.
