Rhododendrons in Redwoods

Del Norte Redwoods SM15-4

Rhododendrons seem to be blooming a bit later this year on the redwood coast. They were in full bloom last weekend along the Damnation Creek Trail. Last year they bloomed a full three or four weeks earlier. Not sure why they’re later this year, but they were. Here are a few images of them taken about a week ago (June 28, 2015):
