Linda and Marilyn joined me for the MMRP Friday morning hike.

We hiked out Dixie Mine; Marilyn turned around at the road. Linda and I turned left onto the service road, then right onto Prospector. We turned right onto Bell Pass, right onto Windmill, and right onto Coachwhip. We returned via Dixie Mine.

We saw a red-tailed hawk on Dixie Mine. Later on, we saw a black-tailed rattlesnake on the Bell Pass Trail. I took photos of both, but I don't think that the snake photos will turn out since it was in some brush. The camera's spot auto-focus kept focusing on the brush, not the snake. In hindsight, I should have used manual focus for that shot.

We were somewhat surprised that we saw no other (human) trail users.
