Mt. Wilson was kind of a home-away-from-home this summer.
The Mt. Wilson Observatory, parking lot, and cafe at the top of Mt. Wilson will be closing in a few weeks, and won’t open again until April. We took another run up the tollroad this Sunday, lunch at the Cosmic Cafe and then back down. Baby rattlesnakes. Super cute, but super venomous too. They didn’t really have the threatening thing down yet – I guess baby reptiles are like any other babies – not really clear on what’s going on around them, not yet convinced that all of existence is a threat. These rattlers just slithered across the toll road as quickly as possible while we stood over and watched.
I’ve all sorts of photos from the summer that haven’t yet made it into a post. It was a great summer.
