We went hiking around Point Bonita Lighthouse near Sausalito, CA last Saturday, April 15, 2017. So glad we went, nice blooms around, a nice change from the last time we went, thanks to the wet winter and lovely Spring weather. I do not know the names of some of the flowers, so feel free to chime in Smiling
Clusters of these yellow flowers around the cliffsides:

Thanks for sharing. Thumbs up

The tall white flowers might be some kind of cow parsnip?

I think the last ones are Bull Thistle, or one of those guys. Smiling
