    I think they're manzanitas.

    That's what I thought! Besides size, is there any way to tell the difference?

    I just looked it up. Madrone leaves are opposite, Manzanita alternate. Unfortunately the picture doesn't show that sort of detail so we'll have to check next time.

    Definitely manzanitas. Madrones have much larger leaves (usually 4-6 inches long) and are bigger and more "tree-like" whereas manzanitas have small leaves (up to 2 inches) and are more "shrub-like" as shown.

    Also, I'd be very surprised to find madrones at Black Diamond Mine. Although their ranges do overlap (I saw both last week in the Sugarloaf Ridge SP area), manzanitas prefer a hotter and drier climate, whereas madrones prefer a cooler more moist environment. Generally, manzanitas are found in the Central Valley foothills and madrones are found in the coast range.
