I went down to the beach today with a couple of friends. There have been some very low tides these few days: a -3.6 at the beach we went to today. We saw a lot of cool stuff (though it makes me realize how inter-tidal spoiled I was growing up in southeast Alaska), including this guy who looks like an escapee from an H.P. Lovecraft story. I imagine that's going to take a while to digest!

Went tracking at a local park with a couple of friends this weekend. One of them has spent quite a bit of time there and showed us several really cool things including several black bear beds/dens.

Here's Mark enjoying a cushy den built under a nice sheltered overhang.

And here is a nice bed with a thick layer of sword ferns. So cozy. Note as well the marking on the tree behind the bed.
