Here some pictures I've taken of Sierra Junipers while hiking around the mountains. It seems like the older I get the more I appreciate beautiful areas like these. After being cooped up in an office during the week the mountains seem to refresh my mind like nothing else.
I took the picture above after hiking several miles. I remember being really tired and possibly slightly delusional because I thought it looked exactly like a dragon. I guess that's debatable, but I still love the beautiful deadwood and like the picture.
Some more potential accent plants to display near my collected trees. I like how these flowers look next to the granite. Anyone know what type they are?
One of my favorite plants that I will try and grow this year. I hear this flower referred to as Indian Brush and know there are several varieties. It's really interesting to me that this is actually a parasitic plant and partially lives off the roots of other plants. I have some seed and am going to try and grow it with some other native plants. Has anyone tried growing this?
This isn't the greatest picture, but that's me checking out this massive Juniper that is still alive and growing. I wonder why it grew into that U shaped arch?
Another waterfall after the first snow melt. Hope you liked the pictures, thanks for checking it out!!!
