Mother's Day Hike

A beautiful hike with my mom and one of my sisters. The girls continued in their new fascination with everything, catching butterflies (oh so gently!) and two lizards (gotta be fast!)

Same insect, from the underside.

Telling the story of the capture of the lizard

New Friend


We think this is a Yellow Orb Spider (on hemlock, which freaked Gabriana out!)
Western Fence Lizard, sometimes known as a "bluebelly."  Love the gentle handling, thanks to the mentoring of Rangers David and Shannon.
