Today I decided to explore Cat Peaks trail a little further. It's a shame that it's so short because it really is the prettiest trail I've been on so far. Just as I reached the junction, a couple ladies on horseback let me know there was a large rattle snake about 100 yards ahead. I never saw it, but I did get a little extra cautious from that point on.
I couldn't have asked for a nicer day to hike. It was 86 degrees and there was a nice breeze blowing. I took my next larger sized fast pack so I could double-up on my water.
Since I brought the extra hiking pole, I decided to take a spur trail that leads up to the summit. The view was amazing. I just sat on a rock for about a half hour and watched all the non-happenings below. During that whole time I only saw one guy on a mountain bike and an elderly couple thoroughly studying the trail markers.
In regard to the previous Bigfoot post, I did take a photo of him and updated that post with the new photo.
