I pulled myself away from pixel trivia to get a hike in. I didn't see any snakes this trip. I think then knew Tortoise Hiker wasn't with me. I started around 4:10p and the east side of the trail was shaded. The sun was low enough by the time I came around the west end that it wasn't too hot out. I saw a few rabbits and a few other hikers but other than that a quiet trip.
