|Single Coral Root|
Walking into St. Louis Canyon I finally found the elusive Coral Root. It is sort of hard to find because it is so small and looks like a glorified stick. Many or most people walk right by and not even know it is there. What a treat. It is in the orchid family. It grows in a sandy slope area. At least that is where I always see it.

Once again we arrived in St. Louis Canyon and was rewarded with a beautiful waterfall.
There was a little guy that was so excited to be in this little cave like area in the canyon. He was so excited that I took his photo. Hope he gets a chance to see it.
|Back to the Trolley|
Back to the Trolley and onto the next canyon. French Canyon is next.
Lots of people were at the State Park Visitor Center today. I gave my group a 10 minutes break to go to use the restroom. They were to meet me out front, if they weren't there we went into the canyon without them and met them at the trolley for the next canyon. The first group we left 3 and the second group we left 5. They all chose to do ice cream instead (I think).
First bloom on the Flag Iris. They are blooming all over the park in marshy areas. This pair was on the way to French Canyon.

I am always amazed at this wall in Ottawa Canyon. I think it looks like the Canyon wall was carved with a butter knife.

I love this license plate. It belongs to a member of our Walker's Club.
I will leave you with this: I will leave you with this, Wherever you may hike or walk, just put one foot in front of the other. It's all about the experience not the destination
