My Daily Life and Thoughts while in San Diego | List of Best Posts
This blog is where I express myself to the world or at least to those who might stop by to read what I post . Maybe God will use what I post (I am a Christian and this blog will have a most decidedly Christian bent to it) to good effect in the lives of my readers.

I may turn some of my posts into a book. I may cease blogging here altogether. Who knows. But for now..I am content to post away in this, my own little corner of the world.

Rather than reading through my now lengthy list of posts you may wish to read what I consider to be my very best posts or you can just read the posts that deal with a single subject category that might interest you.

Please know that I am open to any input on any topic I write about. If you have something to say about anything you see written here please....feel free to speak up in the form of leaving a comment or sending me a PM (private message).

And if you are in San Diego and wish to meet the one and only Carlos (that's me )...drop me a private message. I always enjoy meeting one of my readers!

A GIANT California Snake!

I went hiking in the "mountains" of Southern California with a friend today (that's me in the next photo...didn't realize I was going so bald ).

While we were hiking I saw a HUGE California Snake! It was dead and quite dried out but I sure wouldn't want to meet one of these giant snakes out in the woods anywhere! If you hate snakes Southern California is not the place for you to be. I kinda like them myself. Here's a photo of it.

The lack of water down here is quite severe as you can see in the next photo.

No water. No horses. No fishing. Given that this is California I'm surprised that they didn't add a few more rules to make it an even number. Like...no picking of your nose, no barefoot walking, and no loitering on the bridge LOL.

I had a wonderful time hiking though I think I overdid it again. I've been trying to walk more every day and my legs are getting better but walking an hour and half one way and then back again was a bit too much. We never did make it to the top of the "mountain" we were shooting for.

Maybe next time.


PS. I think I better clarify something in case someone takes me seriously about that "snake". It's not a real snake. Can anyone guess what it is?

    When I see the picture of the "snake",I think it is just like a section of a thick rope rather than a giant snake.
    Snakes always have horrid skin.
    Am I right?

    You are close Haller!

    It's actually a cloth material that is filled with dirt and is used on hillsides and other places in the San Diego area to supposedly catch water or prevent erosion. At least that seems like the most likely explanation. They are quite common. The surface of the cloth always struck me as being like snake skin so while hiking the last time I thought I would take a photo and have some fun with it.
