Spring is Over (in SoCal)

Ugh. It's hot out. Yesterday the thermometer topped out at about 97 degrees. We went on our usual hike today up to the cell phone tower. It's amazing how quickly things go from green to brown.
Our shrinking mudhole.
The highlight of the day was spotting this (rather long) garter snake on the trail!
Bails was oblivious and walked right past it, only to lay down 10 feet away for a quick break.

    Hey There! Nice photo. That is actually a type of whipsnake though. Very cool. It's either a California striped whipsnake or a desert whipsnake. Take care! Cool site!
