Photographs by Michael Charters





This photo gallery is composed of pictures from two field trips, a CNPS field workshop in San Diego County which was led by Fred Roberts during which we stopped at a burned area just southeast of I-15 on part of the old Marine Camp Elliott land which is now a public park, then headed east on I-8 and up the Viejas Grade Road past an Indian reservation and up Pine Creek, eventually taking the S-1 to Cuyamaca, and a follow-up trip I did by myself about two weeks later in much the same areas along the S-1 to the Cuyamaca Mountains. An asterisk next to the common name indicates a non-native species.
