Goat Rock Overlook

3:40 pm - On our way to this one I had my first ever rattlesnake encounter. He was a fierce one, all of about 6 inches long. His rattle didn't seem to be working yet. He didn't seem too happy though when I poked him with a stick to try to get him off the trail. He grudgingly slithered away.

The sides of the trail were closed for plant restoration, but there was a fallen tree over the path, so we had to cross it anyway. Nice view from up here. I found it OK and TNLNSL. Thanks.
