Little Tujunga. I love the view of this road from Camp 9. See that curve way in the distance?



This is the top of that curve.

We called these yellow wildflowers “sour grass”. Not sure what they really are called.

Could be Oxalis or Wood Sorrel.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxalis

The leaves are edible and have a tart taste. Don't eat too many. The tart taste comes from Oxalic Acid.
