Pholcophora americana (Pholcidae, cellar spiders), adult female, 3-mm long, Pine Mountain Lookout Cabin, Mendocino National Forest, Lake County, California - 14 August 2014. Found with an adult male under a log. Although this is apparently our most widespread and abundant native pholcid, very little is known about its natural history. Most of the cellar spiders seen in and around homes were introduced from other continents. Link to diagnostic photomicrographs of this spider on Bug Guide: bugguide.net/node/view/998675

This little mouse, perhaps 2-3 inches long without the tail, was foraging for food in the cabin at night. Although perhaps a House Mouse would be the expected species, the eyes look big and the tail somewhat bicolored, so I'm wondering if this could be Peromyscus instead?

Seen on the Sunset campground nature trail. Growing in the thick of the chaparral among lots of chamise, and manzanitas. Soil was poor, kinda sandy, and conditions were very very hot and dry. There was a interpretive guide, but it simply referred to this shrub as a scrub oak.

Went camping for a couple days with the family. Lake Pillsbury is one of our favorite places to go. It is a little off the beaten trail, but its definitely worth it. The lake was only 40 percent full this time we visited, which meant there was no good swimming water immediately by the campground. We ended up driving around the lake to where the Lake Pillsbury Resort is located and swam there for a while.
