Figueroa Mountain - 6-April-2016

On April 6th, we revisited the Figueroa Mountain area to check the status of the wildflower bloom.  This time we took the Catway/Zaca Ridge dirt forest road to a lookout on the face of Zaca Peak.  As expected, this route gave us some great views of some of the poppy displays that we had spotted along the mountain ridges.

We were surprised at how many more Mariposa lilies had bloomed in the six days since our previous visit.

We were amazed by some very dense patches of wild hyacinth (aka Blue dicks)
