Wilder Ranch SP

Believe it or not, I have lived in Santa Cruz for nearly 15 years and have never been to Wilder Ranch State Park.  This is especially surprising given my hobby of nature walks and bird photography.  I of course was blown away by the birds here, since a large coastal restoration project in the area has left entire beaches just for wildlife.
I hiked about 4 or so miles in on the Old Cove Landing Trail.
