Photographer bondgurl posts this photo of daffodils in bloom already in Northern California. She logs these comments with the image posted to Flickr: Emilie’s Denali Training Hike at Mount Diablo State Park starting from the Regency Drive Gate in Clayton CA. 10 miles 3000+ feet elevation gain. January 24, 2009.
bondgurl sends us these additional comments: I don’t know much about daffodils, but it has been a very warm sunny January here in California so it doesn’t surprise me that flowers feel like blooming. Apparently these daffodils are possibly a remnant of an old cabin site that burned down several years ago.
Of extra special interest: bondgurl describes the Donner Canyon Road hike in her photoblog Rambling. Spend some time with the blog, and you’ll be moving to the San Francisco area just to hike the trail of Mount Diablo State Park.
