A group hike on an overcast, then very wet, day. We started from the mouth of Yellow Bank Creek (near Fambrini's vegetable stand on Highway 1). A northern harrier hawk cruised back and forth along the coast, hunting. Crossing pasture land, we proceeded up the ridge between Yellow Bank & Liddell Creek East Branch. Entering the forest near the top of the property, we turned west along a sharp ridge, looking down Liddell Creek toward the ocean. A mixed forest with madrone and spring wildflowers. In heavier rain, we dropped down a road to Liddell Creek. Sword ferns abounded; thick forest. My cameras were wet by the end of the hike, lending a surreal patina to the photos.
