Photo Friday – October 17, 2014

It’s time for another boost of photographic inspiration to get you through the last day of the work week and off into the weekend.

First, some residual late-summer inspiration from Kat Sanchez while hiking on the trail to Mount Lowe. Kat is also planning a Plant Community Walk near Whittier to point out all the useful native and non-natives that grow in the area!
