Well, after the eating we headed up to Palomar Mountain State Park for a little geocaching. I don't remember ever being here before. The trail was shady with pine and oak (and cedar!) trees, plus there were tons of ferns..Almost like a Washington forest, but not raining and maybe not nearly as green.
Here we see Matt being stalked by a giant snake!
Here, he is resting beside a tree that I thought was filled with buzzing bees, but turned out to be flies. And I don't want to know why.
So I climbed up a nearby electrical pole to get this shot of some bird, looks like hawk or something.
I took a bunch of pictures of these butterflies, this was the best one!
I took a picture of Matt at one end of the culvert, and he took a picture of me at the other end. This is the Doane Creek culvert under the park road.
We found two geocaches along the way.
While resting on the trail at a conveniently placed bench we found (carved with a chainsaw from a log.), a small child approached and asked about my hiking stick. I explained it was my hiking stick, and showed him where I had carved my nickname, which quite amused him and his companion, presumably his little sister, who was quite precocious and asked me many questions about my nickname and how I got it.
We took the slow road back to the freeway, getting stuck behind a very large truck that may have been carrying oranges.
We had dinner at Panera. I had broccoli soup and some sandwich that I cannot remember. And a Diet Pepsi. And an apple, instead of chips. So there is healthy for you.
