Monarch Butterfly Grove & Meadow Creek Trail, Pismo Beach

Usually we just go with the flow but this time the latter was particularly exhausting, especially while baby-wearing. Lesson learned.

The El Moro Elfin Forest in Los Osos boasts a boardwalk hike for the kids.

That means this adventure lets you entertain your child while earning good karma points at the same time. Bonus.
