The Three Snake Hike in pictures

While I was off on Spring Break last week, if you follow me on twitter or are a Facebook friend, you saw my posts about a boring little hike I went on with my older son šŸ˜‰

I had spotted Gonzales Canyon a few weeks ago while going for a quick walk near the freshman baseball field at the high school. Turns out there’s a whole series of really nicely plotted trails just north of the school. Nice, wide, utility access roads doubling as trails. Very hilly and also descending into what looked like some pretty thick brush and a tree lined canyon going along a creek bed. It also did not look very populated so I didn’t want to explore it alone. (Torrey Pines Reserve for instance, has folks hiking on it constantly so is completely fine to hike alone). It just figured that the day that I was able to have time, and a hiking companion, also happened to be the first really sunny, dry, warm day in months. In other words – hello Spring – and? Hello previously slumbering reptiles šŸ™‚

    Wow! Nice snakes.

    It looks like a great hike, although I understand fully the need for a big stick to do some sweeping.
