My World #127: Wildcat Canyon Regional Park

17 Jul

One of the nearest regional parks and one of my fave spots for a hike during the spring and summer months because of the availability of cherries and blackberries.

Two Saturdays ago we decided to take a little hike up the hill to check out if the blackberries are ready for picking yet and if there were some left over cherries. We knew the cherries were past their season, but the blackberries we knew peaked in August.

I went ahead and brought the camera in case there weren’t any berries to be picked.

Some of the shots I took on that walk:



Haven’t seen this pattern on an agave plant before, have you?


The berries weren’t all ready yet, the ones that were black were a bit tart still.


Going down hill to the parking lot.

    I hope you can go back and get some more blackberries when they are fully ripe. But at least you had a good hike on this occasion.

    Where IS this? Such gorgeous photography, my dear. Are you possibly in Northern California? I want to take that walk!

    What a beautiful place to walk. I like the close-ups and the wider shots. Good to have both perspectives.

    Wild berries are so much better than farm grown!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

    Loved your berry hike, even if you found them tart. So many interesting patterns and textures.

    Those look yummy! Our blackberries (we’re now in Oregon) aren’t ripe yet — but it looks like it should be a bumper crop. What a great hike. Glad you took your camera.
