Never mind the bears, mountain lions, bobcats and coyotes. I've had more than one park ranger tell me that ground squirrels are among the most dangerous critters out there because of all the diseases they potentially can carry: Rabies, bubonic plague, and the ticks that carry lyme disease.

It's been a while since I've seen a horned lizard and surprising close to home on the Santee trails. This is the biggest one I've ever seen

A good sized coach whip spotted in the same general area. He didn't want to pose for pictures.

Made a little friend on the trail today. He froze and pretended we couldn’t see him for a long time. I finally prodded him gently with a stick (a long stick!) and he moved off with the cutest little high-pitched, low-decibel buzzing. Not like the big f*ckers that send a shiver down your spine.
