Evening Sapwi Stroll

After Don finished work we went to my favorite park, Sapwi, for a evening hike.  It did not disappoint.  

These yellow mustard flowers add such beautiful color but they are an invasive species in California.  Why are they so bad:   According to the California Invasive Plant Council, this mustard produces allelopthic chemicals that prevent the germination of native plants. Additionally, fields of mustard transform native habitats into annual grasslands which can increase the frequency of fires in chaparral and coastal sage scrub.

And my favorite spot in the park.  Maybe the best place to watch the sunset (other than the beach).
