Suspending the bridges

I'm suspending the last two bridge posts for a while in order to bring you some of the flora and fauna you can see now in the canyon.

The Gooding Willow is spreading its seeds now. How, you ask? The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind. Look along the creek for this riparian tree.

There are several species of lupine in the canyon area; this one can be found in sand along the creek. I noticed a healthy crop in the area downstream from the dam. The Bahada Lupine is quite hairy, but not spiny.
