I went for a hike this weekend at the Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve. It was a really great hike up into the Coast Range with some great views of the mountains and beyond! We saw some nice mosses like this small Fissidens and the spring wildflowers were in bloom.

1 - Single click on the image to open it up in a new window. (If you use the image directly from the blog post you will lose a lot of resolution.)

2 - Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the image, and chose the option that says, "Set as Desktop Background" or "Use as Desktop Picture". The wording may vary.

3 - If the image does not fit your desktop neatly, you may have to adjust the image (Mac: System Preferences - Desktop and Screen Saver - Desktop; Windows: Control Panel - Display - Desktop) and choose "Fill screen" as the display mode of your background image.

This is the view back into the mountains.

And this is looking over the ridge out into the central valley. We could see the towns of Winters and Davis, and then way off in the distance is the skyline of Sacramento. 

I would definitely recommend this hike to anyone in the area. Great views from ~1500 feet up and a lot of great plants to check out!
