The winding trail up the northwest slope of Montara Mountain from Pacifica offers a pleasant, verdant respite from the crispy vegetation in many of our local parks (and my yard) during this severe drought year. Chinquapin and manzanita predominate much of the way up, but with a lush mix of ceanothus, huckleberry, silk tassel, coffee berry, elderberry, and toyon to keep it interesting. Quite a few flowers are still blooming. The summer fog is key. Making a fantastic clear summer day all the more special. Wished I'd had the better camera.
