I finally start today's hike, first up White Tank Spring Trail, and pass this dormant hillside gooseberry (ribes californicum)
Date: September 01, 2008, 12h50
This is Live Oak Spring, Henry Coe State Park
The water is green and unappealing, but it's nothing that my water filter couldn't take care of if I were short on water right now. I consider camping somewhere near here, but decide to head on down to Pacheco Camp as planned, just a few miles further.
