Blackberries, banana slugs and sweetpeas

Rocky Butte, the hill on which the City Bible College sits, wears a mantle of wild blackberry bushes. I saw them on my morning walks to the lookout point and on a short but steep and sweaty hike to the reservoir with Shirley, my roomie on the trip.We didn't pick too many because some were on the sour side... the ones that were ripe were very good though.
Wild sweetpeas lined the road up to the top of Rocky Butte.
And I also saw several banana slugs on the wall... this one has a particularly terrified look in its little eye stalk. I guess I got a little close.
