Hiking Along - Big Rattlesnake!

Slept under the stars last night and finished our Brautigan book this morning while sipping hot chocolate in our awesome campsite. It was pretty wonderful. Hiked 5 miles or so to Tule Canyon Creek, where we hung out with Craig, Paul, and two new guys, Gumby and Moses. There was much sharing of treats taken from the trail angel's house yesterday. We hiked another 5 miles or so with varying combinations of the group. It was a pretty typical day - up and down on sandy tread through lots of cacti, yucca and big boulders. A few miles in, George startled a big rattlesnake, which luckily was not on the trail and consequently did not pose a threat to us. It sure was big and loud though! After awhile, we all reconvened at the Anza Hiker's Oasis cache, mile 142.7. There wasn't too much water, but we had lunch there and spent awhile just relaxing. Once it had cooled down a little, we put in a few more miles before calling it quits. We saw another snake on the trail - definitely alive but not moving because it was getting cold out. We also saw and got to touch a little horned lizard. That was fun! We found a nice campsite just up the trail from Craig and spent the evening swapping food and stories. As we were doing this, we met a few hikers who were passing - Peach, Chigger and Lisa. They came and chatted for a little while. This strategy of doing really low mileage is pretty nice. We've been keeping it low so that we make it to the Paradise Cafe for burgers tomorrow (it's closed on Tuesdays) It's nice setting up camp at 5:30pm and just lazing around.
