Some photos from a short training hike this morning in the Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve for an upcoming trip to the Sierra Nevedas in August.  This is in the mountains between Redwood City and Half Moon Bay in the Bay Area of California.  Here's what I saw today :)

Banana slug which could be found all along the trail near the creek.    This one was about 5-6" long.
