Great site you have here…!
The couple in the above photos, I passed them on the Carmel River trail yesterday, 5/17.
The flower variety, was fantastic, I’m no expert, but I counted at least, 2 dozen varieties between the dam and the river camp.
Thanks. What a fabulous display! Thanks to the fire flowers, the USFS shouldn’t need to do any erosion control in the Chews Ridge area, except perhaps in “improved” areas.
