For the past few months, we flower-hikers have been avidly watching the growth of the Humboldt lilies in select locations throughout the Santa Monica Mountains. Yesterday V. and I were delighted to spot our first blooms of the season. Happy dance!
Serrano Valley is located in Point Mugu State Park, at the westernmost end of the Santa Monica Mountains. While I’ve hiked nearby Sycamore Canyon many times, this was my first time venturing into the valley.
