Chocolate Lily

2008 is a great year for wildflowers at Figueroa Mountain. There are many Chocolate lilies at the meadow and the smell of the pines and flowers, at the spot before the dirt road leading to the top, was just as amazing as the site of Lupine and California poppy display. Slideshow - April 6, 2008

Figueroa Mountain

Kate, Kendy and I had a nice road trip to Figueroa Mountain in Spring 2004. They gave me a wonderful intoduction to the Figueroa Mountain area. It is a good idea to bring a flower field guide with you. It doesn't hurt to have friends who are biologist or naturalist either.
