First Flowers of Spring

Yesterday while hiking the Eagle Rock Nature Trail I noticed my first wild flowers of this spring.  One of the ones that caught my attention was this yellow violet.  I assumed it was the Wood Violet I was familiar with in Oregon, but on further research last night I discovered it was a different violet, the California Golden Violet. We also saw some paintbrush and some other flowers I hope to identify today.
