A banana slug hike


This summer Kelton and I were part of a weekly hiking group. We've played in a creek in the redwoods, visted an enviromental museum on the bay, made flower hats in a garden, run in the waves at the ocean and did a scavenger hunt in a slug forest. I brought the camera on the slug hike and here's the group. Cindy is holding Kelton since I'm holding the camera.

Here's a portrait of the biggest banana slug we found. Kelton gave it a tiny, tentative, touch and was done with the real thing, although he enjoyed the foam slug that Cindy made for each of the kids.
