On one of my recent weekend hikes, I came across this plant similar to a dandelion seed pod. It seemed to “pop” out of the landscape of mainly brown, with a few green, plants. I am not sure if it is a variety of dandelion, but its delicate nature and translucent snow-white puff with dark seeds intrigued me. I got in close to take a detailed photo. I feel so fortunate to have these beautiful trails almost in my back yard.
