Yes, another quickie loop in the Jamul Hills last spring, complete w/a rattler in the grass.   eek.gif

Is it hiding in one of the pictures?

Several years ago I did a day hike along the north end of the Lost Coast.  Before the trip I'd seen several mentions of rattlers there.  I was kinda freaked out a good portion of the hike traipsing along ankle high grass/brush.  Never saw/heard one, but it was a bit of a distraction.

I did see a good sized rattler at Montana de Oro SP, but it was out in the open and easy to see from a distance.  It had been a cool, foggy morning and it seemed fairly sluggish.  I don't hate rattlers, I just don't like the possibility of having no idea they are there and then getting nailed.

Yep, it was hiding.  As I remember it didn't even rattle, I just happen to see it move thru the grass.   paranoid.gif
