    I am 99% sure that this snake is actually an odd patterned California King snake. Hopefully some other snake experts will chime in and comment. Look at the head. It's got a classic Cali King head. This is a very rare find!!!

    Your right, according to these guys it is the San Diego Desert Phase Striped California king rare according to the website, thanks for the correction.

    I saw a beaver on the trail last week. Rode up and told the guys. The conversation quickly devolved from there.

    Beavers are best left in private I guess.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Most beavers, these days, are without fur. There should be a law that all beavers can not be left in private. They should be out in the open for all to see and enjoy. They are a wondrous thing!

    We have a beaver problem at one of our trails. It's been an ongoing issue for almost 2 years now. They are destroying the trees in one section of trail. The problem is that every time we try to discuss it...hehehe he said beaver.

    There are many problems with beavers. They can be smelly, and they spread disease.
    Yet somehow, people cant seem to leave them alone.
    The urge to pet a beaver can be overwhelming, but they are not always so eager to be petted.
    It is best to approach slowly with a calming whisper, until the beaver shows you a welcoming sign.
    A wet beaver with a shiny coat is usually a happy beaver and desires attention.
    Never go near a dry beaver, as they are usually ornery, and will not want to play.

    Wildlife you have seen on trail...post your pics...

    5 young bucks. Deer are literally like rats here- they're all over and the city captures and kills them. Although unlike rats, they're butchered and donated to Food Share.

    It's easier if you just tie em up.

    Two of the coolest things I have seen recently

    Four Owls harrassing a Coyote. They were dive bombing him and chased him right into a scrub oak for cover. Watching them fly and manuver was pretty impressive. We watched for about 3 or 4 minutes and then moved on.

    Last year I saw an ant migration about a quarter of a mile long. I was riding at night and at first thought it was a little rivulet of water. It kept going into the grass off the trail and back on. I finally stopped and looked closely and it was a very numerous group of very small ants moving in the same direction about 6 ants wide (about 1/2"). I saw about a dozen different ant migrations on that ride but that was the largest. Must be a seasonal thing but I had never seen that before.

    Sorry, no picts, I rarely ride with a camera.

    Roadrunners are my favorite wildlife on the trails, but they are too quick to get a good pic. Diamondbacks are my least favorite, but they stick around for pictures. Here's a little guy blocking the trail last weekend

    About 18 months ago a fuel reduction burn got a little out of hand and scorched a favorite section of bush. Since then the wildlife has slowly returned as things start to grow back. I saw the first koala since the burn the other day, down low in a tree right beside the singletrack. Nice!
