|Really green Ocotillos|
Did the usual trek today; no need to elaborate. We saw no one in the desert, but Mr. White Hat's white van was parked in its usual spot when we got back to the CR-V.
Driving in to our parking spot today I saw a small snake in front of me and swerved to miss it. When I got out of the vehicle I walked back to scoot it off the dirt road. It was a small Striped Whipsnake that willingly obliged when I stomped my boot nearby. The snake's sudden slithering motion made Dr. K cringe.
