Lovely hike yesterday at our favorite hike with dog place. But amazing number of rattlesnakes. Never have we heard so many in the grass. None on the trail. We have kids who like to trample in the grass. Any thoughts on why so many rattle snakes.
I definitely would take this journey by horse rather than foot. The hills bring plenty of solitude and peace if that is what you are looking for. Although it is spring season, nature is not at its peak at this location. Although, there is a heavy enough stream of water to take your horse for a dip after a 1-2 hour loop/ride.
(You can find guided tours for horseback riding that meet daily at the ranch. Great activity with loved ones)
