Mt Doug Park



These were the first wild roses I have seen this spring and they smelled intoxicating!
You get a 360 degree view from the top of Mt Doug and this is the view towards the farm I used to board my Appy Copper at, the farm land just below the trees. My old stomping ground was from there and up Mt Doug park and down to the ocean to ride on the beach. I have a lot of fond memories tearing around on the trails in the area.

Stonecrop is flowering all over.

I looked these up and they are Menzies Larkspur

Patti, came for a visit to see how youse doin'... This post brought back many happy memories of us riding the Mountain, chasing, racing and winning over the motorized bikers that used to race the trails with the horse riders (us)! Copper and Gayla were SOOO in love!
Today, the first day of summer, finally seems like it!
luv J
