While working in Mendocino County this weekend we noticed many of the low intertidal kelps looked very healthy. This is a beautiful patch of Five-ribbed Kelp (Costaria costata). Many of the blades were nearly 6 feet tall. P.S. For a little more information about this species, see the previous post called "Puckered up" from 22 August 2012.
