Occasional updates, reading recommendations, outdoor adventures, and much, much more (and less.)
Really, it only makes sense, considering this ochre invertebrate is the mascot! Reminds me of the time my parents came to visit me when I was living in the infamous and great trailer park on that very campus. They decided to forgo getting a hotel and just sleep in the back of their 1970 VW van, which, actually, looks much like a banana slug in terms of hue (and has been growing moss and lichen on its hood for over a decade now!). And the UCSC cops busted them and made them go down to Natural Bridges in the middle of the night! Down with campus authority, but long live the banana slug!
Funny, I was just getting directions to visit that trailer park. I liked the ochre description. To me, banana slugs always look like slices of over-ripe mangos.
