Today was exciting! We had a great day collecting specimens and we went to the famous Tomales Bakery for breakfast. The bakery is open until they sell out of pastries. You have to get there early. Getting a hot chocolate and pastry is a real treat. After breakfast we headed to our collecting site.
A great day collecting specimens that makes for a very long night of data collection. Tonight will be a long night!
Although there is still field work to complete, we still had time for a little fun. During our off time, Maria and I drove north of Bodega Bay to Jenner and Guernville. We headed to Armstrong Redwoods State National Reserve. Once we arrived we were amazed at the grandness of the redwood trees. When you look up the trees seem to go on forever.
I was really excited about having the opportunity to visit the Armstrong Redwoods State National Reserve because this is one of the National Parks California is considering closing due to funding. If the California State Government does close the park, at least I had one opportunity to visit.
