We used to call this "wild tobacco" or "tree tobacco" when I was a kid hiking around in the local mountains. I haven't seen it growing locally in a long time.
Toyon tree with red berries. This is native to California, and another tree I don't see very often unless I get away from developed areas.
A favorite part of the Coyote Hills property are the eroded sandstone cliffs. They have a nice reddish color. Here's a closer look.
Lots of California Pepper trees throughout the property.
Thanks for joining me on this walk of the Coyote Hills oil property. I like the rugged, untamed feel and very much wish it could be left as is. However, it's worth a huge amount of money... to Chevron in selling the property, to the developer/homebuilder, and as future tax revenue to the city. Seems like open space just doesn't stand a chance.
