Pascal and I went on a hike through Tilden Park last weekend to look for critters. We were looking for newts, salamanders and snakes and bugs and whatnot.
The first critter we came across was a banana slug:
We romped around a bunch of poison oak:
Lifting up logs and rocks, we found a couple skinny salamanders:
We also saw some lizards running around:
and some gnarly bark:
And most cute of all, a little turtle!
There was a turkey, some pigs, goats, and other random animals at the Tilden Petting zoo.
It was a great hike/walk and I think I'll have to explore more places for more new critters!
