Saw one during my study break (ie nightly 7-miler) on the trail in Marian Bear Canyon, between Genesee and Regents, about 715pm. Not surprising after a hot day like today. Another baby one actually, although compared to the last one I saw a week or two ago, this one was having none of my tomfoolery and went into full-on defensive-posture when I gently kicked dust at it to get it to move. I added it to the Rattler Map, which is starting to get filled up with people's rattlesnake encounters around San Diego. Seen one? Put it on there so we can see where we run across them, and avoid harm for both them and us.
Note the thick brow-ridge, the idiotic grin, and the death-grip on the beverage. You can email this handsome devil at email@example.com.
