Today I checked another blog adventure off my list.
Only 25 minutes away, but an hour drive in CA traffic,
artist/friend Marie drove us to Bolas Chica Wetlands Conservancy.
I have driven by it hundreds of times, each time
promising myself to someday stop and walk the trails.
Today was that day.
With 1,449 acres, the Bolsa Chica Wetlands is
the largest saltwater marsh between Monterey Bay
and the Tijuana River Estuary.
Since Bolsa Chica is home to rattlesnakes, black widows, coyotes,
and poison oak as well as many rare and endangered species ...
it is important that visitors stay on designated trails.
Over 5 miles of trails can be explored from sunrise to sunset.

Bolsa Chica is considered a salt marsh.
Year round, salt water enters the wetlands through
Anaheim Bay in Seal Beach as well as a tidal inlet
near the south end of the reserve.

We finished our adventure by crossing Pacific Coast Highway ...
and eating our lunch watching the Pacific!
Doesn't it look like a good day?
I was hoping you might like to tag along?
