Here are a few pictures that didn't get posted yet. These first ones are from last weekend (nine days ago).
Brian and I went to a movie, came home and took the kids to see some tarantulas. My sightings have dropped way off, and I really wanted the kids to get to see one up close and live before the season passes and they go back in the ground till next August.
We hung a left on the way back out of Mitchell Canyon, onto Globe Lilly trail. If you've never taken this little trail (and most don't, most stay on the main fire road), it provides some great views! You go out the valley to the second park bench, hand a right, and take the first right. It takes you back to the first park bench.
This batch is from last weeks run. It's Brazen's/Save Mt. Diablo Trail Challenge 10k course.
The picture below is me standing on the same rock that I'm standing on in the picture you always see on the left side of the blog, only w/no water.
I'm thinking tarantula season has rolled out, and deer season is picking up. Turkey season is never ending here, haven't seen a coyote in a long time. Not sure if they really have a season, or if the drought has them in other areas. I know there's a few spots with water still, and when I'm near the watering holes, there's tons of tracks from all sorts of animals.
Anyways, wanted to get these posted before moving on to more current events, like my awesome weekend!!
