This weekend I went to San Diego to spend some quality time with my Dad and see the SDSU Aztec Men's Basketball play their last home game of the season.
On Saturday morning my Dad and I did a 4-mile hike on the mountain behind his house. About 1/2 mile into the hike I was chatting away, not paying attention, which all I sudden I looked down at the trail and saw this guy a couple of feet in front of me:
(not an actual photo of the snake I saw, photo is from here)
I quickly realized it was a 4 ft. long rattlesnake laying completely across the trail and I was about to step on him!
I let out a blood-curdling scream and bolted down the trail away from snake. Well I think my scream scared the snake as much as he scared me because he quickly slithered off the trail and into the bushes.
My heart was pounding out of my chest (I took my pulse and it was 190 bpm) but I finished the hike, making my Dad lead the way from then on out of course. :)
Welcome to springtime in east county San Diego!
Saturday night I joined my Dad in his season ticket seats to watch the San Diego State Men's Basketball Team win their final home game and become co-champions of the Mountain West Conference!
It was so much fun to be in a sold-out arena cheering on Aztecs! (I didn't go to SDSU but I grew up rooting for the Aztecs, so I'm still a big fan). After the game we all rushed the court. Crazy fun!
SDSU is now ranked 9th and is in a good position to make it pretty far in March Madness! Aztecs Fight!
