    Ride the other night

    First is a Tawny Frogmouth

    Second one is of a spider that I see regularly at night. They love building webs at face level. Wraps around your head, like a hair net, Granny used to wear

    Some recent wildlife sightings. A yearling Moose and a herd of Bighorns laying down on a cliff above the road. Hence the power lines in the photo. Rare to see so many big rams in a group. And a red tailed hawk, and a bull elk having his way with the road.

    This one was from yesterday. It appears a turkey vulture has decided to build a nest along the trail.

    It was hissing at folks who wanted to ride by.

    A couple of years ago, a bobcat had taken up residence under this same ledge along the trail. It's in a SUPER narrow and technical spot. That bobcat caused a lot of folks to go tumbling down the ravine, as it screamed at them and startled them.

    I saw some movement out of the corner of my eye the other night while taking a walk through my neighborhood, so I took this pic not knowing what was moving around in a space in the masonry.
    The flash exposed this cute little guy/gal.

    the last time I was out on the trail it was apparently the day for turtles. These are all different turtles I got pictures of and I saw even more of them.

    Yes I would conclude those are mountain lion tracks. No claw marks eliminate bear prints or canine. Pretty fresh too and possibly watching you.

    Once when I was riding in Crystal Cove Park by Newport Beach I came up fast on a little rattler bathing on the gravel road and I had no time to stop so I bunny hopped him. At least that's how I remember it happening, it was a while ago and you know what time does to the memory banks...

    And his did you end up at Crystal Cove Park? I used to drive the 101 right by there every week. What an awesome place to live right on the cove. I always wondered what enormously rich person owned the only house on the 200' cliff overlooking it.

    I lived in an apartment in Long Beach and sometimes drove down there to ride. Either there or Palos Verdes.

    Edit: I looked on Google Earth and there are a lot more than one house overlooking it now!
