December SLO Stewards hike with Seth: Laguna Lake

The morning started off a little bit chilly, but as the group progressed under the nice crisp blue skies we warmed up!  It was a good group of six participants, a couple of who had never been to Laguna Lake before.  Seth, the lead volutneer SLO Stewards docent for this hike, always finds it fun to show participants new spots and share information about the surrounding area. The group was rewarded with sweeping views of the morro’s and surrounding valleys as well as listening to the birds chirp away – there was even a few wildflowers still... read more

August Hike with Jan, Felsman Loop

I was joined by four hikers at 7:00 am on a foggy Saturday morning. Two were locals and two were from the Bay Area.  All were enthusiastic hikers.  We set off for the the Felsman Loop.  It’s a trail with moderate elevation gains and a distance of about 2.7 miles.  Lucky for us we had a botanist who was also well-versed in critters, too.  We had a nice easy hike with many stops to investigate some very large beetles and pill bugs that were leaving interesting tracks on the trail.  Ants were busy harvesting seeds and carrying them back to the nest.  Mountain mahogany tails were putting on a display.  The highlight of the day was fishing for spiders!  We found several spider holes in the trail that had a thin layer of web at the entrance to trap unsuspecting creatures.  We stuck a grass stem down the hole and the spider grabbed it.  We all jumped and laughed at the same time! Jan... read more
