Capture Your 365 Day 106: Easter.
During Easter weekend we went on a wildflower hike in the Mt. Diablo foothills. This flower, the Mount Diablo Fairy Lantern or Mount Diablo Globe Lily is endangered and only grows within certain elevations on the bayside-western slopes of Mt. Diablo. Each plant is in bloom for only a few months every other year.
The Julpun people recognized Mt. Diablo as the "birthplace of the world". The Miwok saw it from the Sierra Nevada as "the place from which a supernatural being lit a previously dark landscape". We are but a flash in time, but in that time we have the duty of respecting this planet and all that it provides for us. We do this, or undo this, with each choice we make. #choosewisely#savemtdiablo#nature#california#native#gumsaba
