Here are some interesting pictures I took a few years ago when I worked as a botanist for the California State Parks system. Enjoy!
Castilleja densiflora obispoense
Dudleya blochmaniae blochmaniae
Eriodictyon altissimum -- extremely rare, probably a handful of populations left.
Here E. altissimum is again, but with a focus on its natural setting. Even though it is certainly a chaparral type species, I always felt like it was some prehistoric relict.
The view from Morro Rock. Not many people have actually botanized a top of this old volcanic plug.
Random shot of Morro Rock near the top.
Spring near Estero Bluffs.
Monardella undulata. Rare and endangered plant. Just came up in some untouched patch of land behind Los Osos middle school.
Orobanche californica. Root parasite!
