Steep Ravine Spring

Spring has come to Steep Ravine. Webb Creek is running high thanks to nearly a month or rain. No surprise that there were plenty of people out there.

Of course, with Spring comes flowers, and first up is another one of my favorites, Crimson Columbine, an entire patch of which can be found in the lower section of Steep Ravine.
Higher up on the trail, I came across this very unusual fungus. Anyone know what it is?
Out into the Dipsea sun, saw this flower for the first time, so I have yet to identify it. Also found some Mission Bells and Giant Trillium in bloom (another first for me).

This was the first warm weekend of the year, and it was great to get outside. See you on the trail!
