Was out on some volunteer efforts last week and took a few photos while out in the field. No spectacular mountain summits or multi day backpack trips, just some photos.

Snakes are still out. I saw this Rosy Boa as I was walking around my truck, he must have slipped under for some shade, it was 104 that day. I know, nowhere near as heroic of a photo as the one Bob posted with him holding the snake.


This Red Racer was slithering around my work area all day. He eventually ate a pack rat that was nearby.


I found a dead Desert Centipede, these guys look really nasty. He was about 3" long.


Check out this close up of his "claws"


And lastly a sunrise photo over the Fish Creek Mountains, beautiful morning


Also stopped to see the Ocotillo Wind Energy project destruction beginning. I made a 3D panorama of it, click here to view.

That's it, hope you like the photos.

Nice photos Daren. The centipede is better than anything out of the movie 'Alien'. Hoping the stuff they prey on is killed quickly so the absolute terror is diminished. Shock

Nice pics. That centipede close up is downright scary. Been trying to get the girlfriend out camping in the desert more and therefore will NEVER be showing her this post!

Like the Centipede shot also.
Kind of why I like the rooftop tent. smile

Rosy Boas are cool. Very docile. They will just try to wrap around your arm and squeeze.
