CorrosiveHalo and I had a couple of days off last week, and decided to power up the coast to do as many CP-related activities as possible. Pictures below... LOTS of pictures...
We left late on Wednesday night and got all the way to Albion bog by Thursday. Finding the bog took some time, but with Brian's super-human navigation skills, we did it! We were pretty shocked to find so many kinds of CPs. Welcome to the photo tour!
PYGMEA!! I almost didn't see these little guys!
Footsteps from previous visitors...

Darlingtonia were strong growers, and about a foot tall!
Sea of red drosera
My shoes as we left Albion. I spared you the photo of my muddy and mosquito-bitten legs. :disgusted:
On Friday, we stopped for a bit at Fort Bragg's glass beach, and then hit the road again, to drive north for a BobZ visit. It was such a treat to get to chat with him and take in the view at his home.

Bog full of 1955's
On Saturday, we visited California Carnivores and the always-charming Peter D'amato.
The weather was perfect, and the plants were beautiful!
Sunday was our busiest day BY FAR. First stop was "Chomp!" at the San Francisco Conservatory (plants provided by Peter D.), then we went to the BACPS bbq and met some new friends... and finally, we went to Phil Faulsi's house to look at his mind-blowing collection. I woke up on Sunday feeling very ill, so the photographs pretty much stopped by the time we got to the bbq. I had to concentrate on not fainting/or getting sick on anyone...oooof, it was a hot day Anyway- hope you enjoyed the photos! It was quite a trip!
