Inverness in Marin County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Rock Plants
Point Reyes National Seashore
On these fogbound, windblown rocks, things a plant needs to survive are in short supply — sun light, soil, and rain. Salt spray and winds can interfere with plant processes and cause excessive drying. Yet some species survive, like the ice plant pictured above and the red alga in front of you.
Please do not pick or disturb the fragile rock plants.
