Started pretty late so it was a little warm on the way up. Passed a group of what appeared to be trail maintenance workers. Got to the top around 4pm so I wasn't too worried about running into any "non-hikers." Signed the register, dropped the pack, and started my exploration.

I tried to walk quietly and kept an eye out for service trucks. Saw some no trespassing signs... :whistle: The coast was clear, and I headed right for the cliff face towards the north that I've always wanted to see up close. With the winds picking up, I kept a few good feet between me and the rather large drop. I wish it was easier to capture a sense of scale on drop-off photos.

Headed back to the highpoint, grabbed my pack, and started my descent. Had a baby horned lizard scurry right next to me. Not even a minute later, I ran right into a diamondback. Right next to the one of the buildings, too. In good fashion, I froze up, involuntarily said, "Oh my god," and then reached for the camera. It backed up into some boulders before I could get a good shot. :(
