Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

Inyo County Road Cruise

So…a good friend of mine came to the shop where I work yesterday, and as usual…we started talking snakes.  As well…we are both fathers, and the conversation turned towards the kids.  He has 2 boys ages 3 and 6, and I have a daughter, who will be 5 in July.

Anyhow…last night, we both wanted to cruise, and since he had both boys and no vehicle, and I had my daughter and a car…we decided that Zayne and I would pick up the 3 guys, and head out for an evening of Road Cruising. 

The kids had a blast, playing and whoopin’ it up in the back seat, while Steve and I cruised the paved back roads looking for snakes, lizards, and amphibians…and nobody was disappointed:

We also found a “DOR”(dead on road) Desert Nightsnake and a DOR Panamint rattler.  So all in all…for my first “Official” Inyo County Road Cruise…it was quite a successful night.

Thanks for coming along!
