    It's very rare that a coyote or MTN lion attacks a human.

    Aren't they all feline? And don't they mostly have 'em for breakfast or dinner?

    Don't you hate pedants?

    Here's my latest encounter. It's a huge (nearly 5 feet long!) San Diego Gopher Snake. In fact, I happened upon two of these guys in one day!

    Horses...

    Came around a bend to see this one right off of the trail. Notice the nice obstacle left on the actual trail.

    After walking around her another horse was up a ways right off of the trail and third horse came walking directly towards us on the trail.

    Beautiful animals. It's amazing to see their size up close. I still dismount and walk quietly around them (out of kicking range). No desire to spook those things.

    Northwestern Salamander.
    I've seen a few of these guys this year. This one's the biggest though at around 6" long.
    He was in the middle of the trail so I scooped him up and put him out of the way.

    Desert Tortoises are out in force here in AZ, I saw 3 this morning, including this little guy. The smallest I have seen so far. Unfortunately I almost didn't see him, and stopped right next to him. I must have scared him or nudged him by mistake before I saw him, cos he lost his water reserve right there. This is not a good thing for the little guys, and I didn't want to leave him with nothing. I found a small rock with a 'cup' in the surface, emptied some water from my pack, and put it up to him. He did seem interested, and I hope it didn't evaporate before he got some. At least rain is forecast for the next few days...
