I was running up Mount Falcon today and almost got bit by a rattler . . . Enough said. I saw a few other animals too, some deer, a lizard, and a pit-bull off leash . . . but the owner said he was friendly though, so it was “OK”.
When I first looked at the snake it didn’t have a actual rattle, so I thought it was a rat snake or something. And then I heard it . . .
Mount Falcon 12 miles with 2930’ of gain.
