Before I get to today, let me digress. Last night I was having problems shutting my door properly. It kept getting stuck. Couldn't find my flashlight so I was working on it in the dark. I pushed a switch, stepped outside and closed the door thinking that would help.
Oh no! I locked myself out of the White Lion 😖😡. I couldn't believe it. Yuma is inside but he can't help. After having a few discussions with myself, I started thinking. Walked around and lo and behold I had left the passenger side window open a crack back when I ran the TV cable through it. Opened the window, grabbed the table the grill was on and hoisted myself into the passenger seat. How is that for an old 75 year old?😂
Now to this morning. Woke up at 8:30 and got right up and took Yuma out. It was sunny and warm when the sun was shining and a little cool when a cloud covered it. Looks to be a nice day ahead. Right at 9 o'clock the ATVs were at it. Late sleepers like me I guess.
Had my breakfast outside again and did some thinking of what to do today. Looked to see how far Slab City is from here and it is 65 miles. Too far. I decided I will catch it later in the week. Decided, I would just take Yuma down to the green grass at Christmas Circle and also do a little snake hunting too! Some of you have been on this snake hunt before and some haven't.
Left at 11 o'clock and half hour later here I am just off Rockhouse Road climbing the south end of Coyote Mountain looking for that darn snake. Done this many times, but always have troubles finding it. Notice no RVs down there?
|See my Jeep down there?|

|I can see Font's Point to the southeast. Can you see the Jeep?|
Must be getting close. I see a scorpion.
Just over this last hill and I look down in the valley below. And there he is: a huge 40 foot rock snake.
|Yuma finds a couple of friends right away!|
As we headed out of town, I took just a couple of the ones in the desert surrounding this town.
The dragon is my favorite. And he is huge.

You're lucky. My camera battery just went dead so that's it for the day. Plus it is almost 3 o'clock and we're ready to rest before time to do all my evening chores.
It's 6 o'clock now and all the kids are already done for the night. Probably packing up and leaving. Still have to fix dinner for Yuma and me and then probably off to bed.
See you later.
