Ruffin Canyon offers primitive trails. Access is on the west and east sides of Taff Middle School 9191 Gramercy Drive. Get out and visit your local canyon open space areas!
Here are some pictures from a recent visit with my dog Rocky 'Bones.
|Taft middle school children have made the canyon a wonderfully artful place|
|I have to admit I do not know the name of this plant|
|The kids have painted the names of many plant species on rocks for easy identification|
|Remnants of hard work by the local canyon volunteers|
|Really cool cactus|
|This canyon has a healthy coyote population|

Nice pictures. The red hanging flowers are on a fuchsia-flowered gooseberry (no, not making it up!), Ribes speciosum. The leaves are nice, too, deep green and glossy. It has some mean thorns, by the way.
Thanks Doug! That sure looks like them. I wish I knew the names of all the plants I see when I am out hiking.ReplyDelete
