We went for a short hike on Black Mountain trail last Sunday. Spring wild flowers were blooming at every step of the way. It made the otherwise strenuous hike much more fun :). Sharing some of the pics captured
With these colorful flowers lining your path, how can you get tired?
Not just flowers, I found these little guys pretty fascinating too. They reminded me of hibiscus flowers. These were the first plants I noticed on our hike.
The expansive views of bay area are visible from many places of this hike. I particularly liked this panoramic capture with clouds forming the curve and morning sun glimmering at the tip, just like a comet 🙂
Here is another panoramic capture on our way back.. the sun is rushing up and my hubby is rushing down 😉
NOTE – Black Mountain is located in West Bay area. For more details on this trail check this awesome site . It is a one stop shop for finding good hiking options in Bay area.
