Today's Santa Barbara Girlfriends Adventure League hike was up the Baron Ranch Trail, near Gaviota.
Ready, get set....
newts in the woods, cute little naked vulnerable creatures. They are rather hard to spot as they are just the color of the fallen leaves around there; thank heavens we didn't step on any, as we had 17 people in the group.
Home by 11:00AM, to have the rest of the day free (after showering off the ticks and poison oak!). Great way to start the weekend!
