Birds, Hardhack & Mountain Sneezeweed – Uplands Park – July 28-2013

P1040496P1040487 An enthusiastic group met to day at 8:00AM, at Cattle Point in Uplands Park, to enjoy the Friends of Uplands Park monthly Sunday Bird Walk, led by Geoffrey and Dave Newell.
P1040494 The “mystery” patch of beautiful yellow flowers is Mountain Sneezeweed, fronting an expanse of Hardhack, and lining either side of one of the muddiest winter-spring paths into the Central Meadow. The muddy path is actually a vernal pool and full of what seems to be algae in the spring, now appearing as dry gray sheets at the base of the Sneezeweed.IMG_3228IMG_3214IMG_3208IMG_3237
