Default Pt. Reyes: Abbott's Lagoon 3/12/17

Yesterday we were at Abbott's Lagoon at Pt. Reyes. We hiked the trail to the bridge at the end of the maintained trail, went up on the headlands above the bridge at the end of the trail and the lower part of the dunes. Although it is early a number of species of wildflowers were out. The only displays were small patches of Goldfields. Expect a lot more in about two weeks.

In our quest to see how many of the Bay Area Calochortus species we can find this year, we found our second species of the season Pussy-ears Star Tulip/Calochortus tolmiei has started to bloom.

The best flowers were on the headland but if you go up there watch out for poison oak as it is plentiful and sometimes small and not obvious. There is also poison oak along the trail but if you stay on the trail you should be OK.
