The Phoenix, photographed at Big Sur, California. An ancient symbol of eternal life, the Phoenix is a mythical bird. Often depicted as a bird of prey, it is also associated with the rising sun. According to legend, every thousand years when the Phoenix senses that its life is coming to an end, it builds itself a funeral pyre made from cinnamon and other aromatic materials and allows itself to be consumed by fire, only to rise again from its own ashes.

    Love that place!

San Lorenzo River Swimming Hole, Henry Cowell State Park. How to find: Look for the "Ox Parking Lot" sign and walk down the Ox Trail. To reach the Garden of Eden, cross the railroad tracks, continue .25 mile and look for the signed spur trail on the left. To find the other, more secluded beach, cross the railroad tracks, go 50 feet and take a spur trail to the left. Look for a brown "State Property" sign on a 20-foot tall tree stump; this sign is by the correct spur trail.

    So Nancy, what's up with the Santa Cruz board? Are you visiting soon or used to live there?? Don't miss the Capitola beach-front area. :)

  • Nancy Wallace

    Yes, I spent 30 years in California, grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains. Going to visit the family. And you are right, Capitola was a pretty trashy place for a while. I'll let you know if they've cleaned the place up ;-)

    Oh, and I'll be sure to get some Big Foot pictures for you, since I know you are one of the few who will appreciate such a treasure. @Sharon Cline

    I was in Capitola last summer and it is much nicer than SCruz at this point. I work for a hospital in SC, by the way. Yes, I need bigfoot pics!
