Foreground consists of pinkish colored rock with. Several very large boulders at a high elevation with a view of green trees stretching to horizon.

Made an exception to my practice of avoiding non-essential use of a car to take a short drive with relatives to visit Elephant Rocks Park. The rocks consist of the remains of a pluton formed 1.4 billion years ago by cooling magma. A beautiful view.

Columbine, a native wildflower, interesting and pretty! Also, an excellent early spring hummingbird food source.
