Rancho del Oso | Big Basin Redwoods | Waddell Beach

November 9, 2014
Davenport, CA
Hikers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 7.4 miles
Elevation Gain: 1,851 ft.

Our planned loop turned into an out and back hike, for the seasonal bridge had already been taken down. The bridges are down from October to late April approximately.

Looking back..

It was mosquito hell...

That is one huge banana slug!

The trail to our loop ended here. Now - if goat was with us, she would have waded on through (as we should have) - and yes, we would have followed.

Nasty little creature - just look at the proboscis (elongated sucking mouth-part ) on this guy!

Shielding the sun from the camera lens.

This looked like a tabletop floral arrangement - it was so beautiful.


We were excited to get back and hang, and have lunch at the beach. Unfortunately it was extremely windy and cold. :(
