The other day my friends and I decided to go on a hike.... a really long hike in my beloved redwoods. For some reason, the banana slugs were out in full force . I guess it's mating season or something. They are so disgusting and slimy looking. I don't know how I ever got my "I kissed a banana slug card," but this is a must do for all who come to Santa Cruz!
Here's a photo of one of the slugs:
And he/she was only a small size one! See:
Some of the prettier things we saw:
The view from the mountain looking down at the Boardwalk. I waved hi to my son who was working that day, but I don't think he saw me! lol
Looking up at the sky through the redwoods.
Stopping for a rest by the river. That's my friend Beth. She;s trainig for a hike in the Grand Canyon at the end of May.
And this is Beth with Trish who just changed her name from Patti so I kept calling her by the wrong name.
And so ends my mini adventure.
