New Photos from the UCSC Arboretum and Fall Creek State Park
It has been nearly two months since my first experimental blog post...I'm not sure what this blog will become - perhaps someone will be led to an interesting hike or cultural event by my mentioning where I've been lately? I love so much of what is going on in the Santa Cruz area, and the beautiful places nearby!
Exploring Nature - In June and July I was outdoors in many wonderful places....We visited the wonderful "Cemex Property" on a driving tour. One day we'll all get to enjoy the deep woods between Empire Grade and Davenport, thanks to a collaborative effort to save the lands...Hikes at Cowell Redwoods, Byrne Forest in Corralitos, China Camp near San Rafael, Pescadero and Bean Hollow, Quail Hollow, Bonny Doon Reserve, and Del Valle Regional Park.
Four days spent in Sequoia and Kings Canyon were amazing! Here is a mix of photos taken there:
