Rainbow Ice Plant Along California’s Coast


On my trip last week along California’s spectacular coastline, I noticed that the Ice Plant growing along the sand dunes and beaches was a very  vibrant color.  Fall weather had made its mark on the Ice Plant. In the second photo below, you’ll see the color of Ice Plant in other seasons.  With an approaching Pacific Ocean storm, the contrast of the autumn colors to the dark blue skies was a refreshing look. Now, if we could only get an ocean in Southern Utah where I live.

This is the beach at Garrapata State Park just south of Carmel. The beach disappeared the next day under the high surf produced from a strong Pacific Ocean Storm.  Those photos to follow soon.
