I volunteered at the Voyageur's Revenge mountain bike race today. The temperatures dropped steadily throughout the day, making it a cold day for spectating, but great for the racers. I was posted about 1.5 miles up Hwy 210 where racers left the trail on the south side of 210, rode for a short time on the pavement, and then crossed back into the trails on the north side.
After the various races were over I opted to walk back down the highway and took a few photos along the way:
|Blue Vervain (Verbena hastata)|
|Close up of the flower.|
|Including flower spikes and leaves.|
|Coreopsis species (C. lanceolata?)|
|Coreopsis species (C. Lanceolata?)|
|Cold bee on thistle|
The new Mission Creek mountain bike trails look like a lot of fun to ride and I anticipate heading out there soon for a little two wheeled exploring.
