Woodrat's nest.

Upside-down heart.

(Thanks to Bay Area Hiker for plant identification.)

Critter nest?


Sort of looks like an IV bottle.

We were there!

Found these banana slugs snoozing inside a hollowed-out tree.

With the amount of traffic on our way out, it felt like an evacuation was taking place.

Jackson Flat Trail, Canyon Trail, Indian Trail, Olmo Fire Trail, Doe Ridge Trail, Goat Hill Trail, Ano Nuevo trail.

Note: At the time of our visit the parking fee was ten dollars (well worth it).

Per the park's website, this is a required to watch video. It explains how any food scraps you may leave behind, however small, can be detrimental to the park's wildlife.
