San Bruno Mountain

You know how you can live near a restaurant and walk by it every day and then one day, after years of walking by, realize they serve the kind of food that you absolutely LOVE......and you go and it's great, leaving you wondering why on earth you never went there before?

Last weekend B and I went to San Bruno mountain. For the first time. Which is totally ridiculous because it's truly lovely there. We saw....


Moss and Lichen (loving the rain)


A huge ant colony. I read later that there are 27 native ant species on San Bruno Mountain. What kind of ants are these?


Fritillaria affinis (aka Mission Bells or Chocolate Lily)

My number one terrestrial mollusc!


Ariolimax columbianus (aka the mighty Banana Slug )
