    Wow! I'm glad I only come across garter snakes and blue racers on our trails. We have Massasauga rattle snakes around the area, but they're scarce and generally pretty sluggish.
    If you turn the light on fast enough,
    you can see what the dark looks like.

    Actually, they were quite tame and curious.

    Still, I backtracked and went around another way. I wasn't about to try and squeeze past five horses on a wooded section of single track with a bicycle...

    Two critters I encountered last week at Fruita.

    A bird that I do not knowwhat the species is. It made a wierd sound.

    While riding Horsethief Bench with a few college riders, one of them popped a tire and when we were about to restart, this lizard came crawling out on a rock..then did this strange head-bobbing at me and let me take a picture.

    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    The bird is a Chuker which is a popular bird in the Partridge bird family with hunters. The lizard is a Side-Blotched Lizard, a male.

    We've been seeing lots of adult Mantis's her at our complex also. We have a regenerating population that starts again every Spring. This is just about the coolest insect in the world. I love how they turn their head to look directly at you. I handled a medium sized female a few days ago, taking her out of the walk way and placing her back in the planted area. Too cool!

    That mule deer is so cute! Last weekend I thought I had a stick tangled up in my wheels. My buddy was behind me, he said "it's still there". It was a black snake, got thrown up to where it was wrapped up around my waist. Luckily it got loose and slithered away. All I could think was, good thing that didn't happen to my wife.
