My friend and I checked out the multiple botanical gardens UC Santa Cruz had to offer. All the gardens were beautiful and in bloom. Although I’d recommend to bring a water bottle because there weren’t that much shady spots when we went. The flowers were gorgeous and I felt a little bad for making us stop every five steps to take a photo.
Definitely one of the best spontaneous adventures I’ve had with these two. She let me step on her to cross over a part of the river. He helped me keep my balance while crossing over some loose logs. Sometimes I can’t “adventure” without these two, otherwise I end up falling into a stream. No lie, I definitely would have without them. I can’t keep my balance to save my life. Regardless how cold and unprepared we were for this visit to the park, we marched through the woods and got some great photos. We definitely plan to come back again, but most likely with the proper attire next time.
