Dupoint Trail: Thane to Bishop Point
When Marc was here several weeks ago he took us on a hike along the Dupont Trail towards the Dupont Harbor. The boardwalk/trail wound through the woods amidst the giant skunk cabbage. Taking walks like this reminds me of what it might be like to wake up in Jurasic Park without the beasts.
Along the trail we saw some orange-yellow columbine – later to find out they are Western Columbine (as opposed to the Blue Columbine, which are…blue) I haven't seen this variety before or at least I don't recall seeing it. We also saw some small blue-purple violets at the beach - very delicate among the beach sand and rocks.
