CJ and I joined up with a group of local SDMB hammerheads last night for a jaunt up to Cherry Tank. Riding from 6:30 to 10:30 PM we encountered quite a few critters:

Four rattlesnakes, one had a very close encounter by the third rider in line when we stopped to admire a tarantula. We probably rode past a few more but thought they were rocks or cow pies.

Six tarantulas, apparently all males cruising the trails for lady tarantulas.

One fleeting skunk, which apparently gave a small spray to cover its withdrawl, something the riders behind me who did not see it smelled.

One millipede All rolled up with legs retracted.

And a set of mountain lion tracks, one mature and one a bit younger judging by the paw size and stride.

A far cry from the last Cherry Tank ride I did with SDMB when we tallied one scorpion and a pretty large and aggressive wind scorpion.

a good night on the bike!

big props to all who took part in our adventure last night. the ride was sweet and the wildlife encounters really "put the icing on the cake". i thoroughly enjoyed myself.

i will see if jeff will post up some of those rattler pics from last night.

speaking of rattlers and jeff, do you suppose he checked his shorts when he got home?

til next time-

Hey I forgot the mini Komodo Dragon.

A.k.a. the teenaged Gila Monster in Happy Valley.

Excellent ride with excellent riders, trails and wildlife.

That was one sweet ride! I'm glad I was riding anchor - you'uns skeered all of those tandy branders so my shorts were still clean. Jeff could have been in a bad way so easily.

Oh yeah - you left the huge toad off of the count!
