Banana slug stampede in Nisene Marks

If you’ve never been to Nisene Marks, get in your car and go there now.

It just rained, and the place is oozing with giant banana slugs — skinny ones, fat ones, short ones, curly ones, straight ones, green ones, yellow ones, old ones, baby ones.

I was only there for an hour, and I saw 25 of these slime-covored creatures without trying.

Strange that I saw exactly that number, considering this is the 25th anniversary of Sammy the Slug, the mascot over at UC Santa Cruz.

Coincidence? Yes.
