2008_June_29 Wildcat Peak, Berkeley, CA
Afternoon hike to Wildcat Peak in Berkeley via Jewel Lake in Tilden Park. The artichokes were all over the place, with full bushes of sticky monkey flower (the small orange blossoms), some indian paintbrush, and tons of poison oak all over the hillsides and intertwined with the just ripening berries. Just as we reached the summit look-out, the heavy summer evening fog rolled in and obliterated the view and the sun.
