Morgan Territory in the Spring

After a month of not being able to hike because of rain on Fridays, we finally got a beautiful day.  We went up the windy road to Morgan Territory Regional Park to see if the wild flowers were out.  Indeed they were!  There were fields of yellow buttercups, sprinkled with white, purple, and yellow/brown flowers.  This is one of my favorite places to see the flowers and it didn’t disappoint.

We did our usual trails, a 3 mile loop starting at the parking lot and going mostly on Volvon Trail.  The ponds were full and there were a few muddy spots on the trail.  at one point, we could look out over the Central Valley all the way to the snow covered Sierra Mountains in the far distance.  That has not been the view in recent years.  It was really good to get out and hike again.  2017-04-21 10.13.53.jpg
