Purisima Creek Redwoods (2015 Edition)

It turns out we had done this hike before! But apparently we didn’t turn back that time. Probably because we had a map. And more time. Anne does quite a bit of hiking these days. Fueled by banana slug hunting, and “I Spy” games, and trail mix. Next time we’ll go farther.

Also, Google dropped support for embedding maps which render GPX files so I switched to Mapbox. So far, so good. And, no scroll wheel zooming for hyper-sensitive Apple Magic Mice.

Catbus monorail. Anne would flip out. :)

P.S.: Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, and a bunch of others are all under $20 at Amazon at the moment.
