I got up around 7:15 this morning, and headed out with the dog to the American River Bend Park. I was hoping to see some slime molds and stuff after yesterday’s rain, but no such luck. Instead, I found a deer skull, saw a bunch of vultures and came across a huge spider… Seemed appropriate for Halloween week. Hah! The dog and walked for about 2 hours (and it never got over 50º while we were out there… Nice!) and then we headed back home.
