    Trip Report-Gasquet, CA - Part 2 - Darlingtonia, Pinguicula

    About a week ago I headed to the Gasquet area of Northern California in search of Darlingtonia californica, Pinguicula macroceras, and Drosera rotundifolia.

    Site 3

    This site is a very large serpentine seep alongside a highway south of Gasquet, CA. It is almost a wall of Darlingtonia californica and Pinguicula macroceras.

























    Site 4

    This site is known as the Darlingtonia Trail, the Darlingtonia Trail is a trail built by the goverment to raise awarenesses of Darlingtonia californica, there are several information boards as well as two viewing platforms.

    Phenomenal! Some of those Pinguicula macroceras are huge. I love how they are all growing on that hillside. Very impressive.

    Very nice photography, too. Thanks for sharing.

    The redness is due to dormacy.

    Oh wow, the government? I thought they didn't care.

    The redness is partially due to cold temperatures, the other half is because the plants in the Gasquet area are much redder than those found elsewhere.
