Snake on the Mountain

This weekend while training on Mt. Baldy, heading down just above the Sierra ski hut Tanya heard a distinctive rattle! She stopped in her tracks, and what did she she a Rattle snake sliding across the trail. She warned me and Doshia of our reptile friend, and we stopped and watched him slither across the trail. A reminder that we are visitors in the wilderness, and we should always be cautious.
