Mussel Rock Park and Shiloh Ranch wildflower hike

On Saturday, we took a stroll around Mussel Rock Park.  There were a few paragliders out, but the wind wasn't strong enough for any of them to really take off.  We did spot a red tipped blackbird, which was pretty cool.  The flowers were in bloom, and the weather was fantastic.

I found this keyhole that I never knew existed.  Tobin's Tunnel.

Afterwards we had some beers in Precita Park.
On Sunday we went for a hike at Shiloh Ranch in Sonoma.  Supposedly the burned areas from the 2017 wildfires were supposed to be an extraordinary wildflower bloom.  We went to one of the trails that we heard about.  We saw a lot of wildflowers, but I wouldn't have called it that extraordinary.  The day before was better.  I brought my real camera, but I never even took it out of my bag.
