Cerro Alto , located on Hwy 41 between Morro Bay and Atascadero Ca.

Since I have been hiking with my new puppy Sierra  ( see her new photo ) I have been seeing more wild life as she alerts me of things that I would normally not be aware of as they are often hidden in the brush . Today I saw a Peacock . It was a good distance away and very quiet . A couple of days ago I saw two coyotes but was not able to photographs same . enjoy !

Cerro Alto hike and training Sierra to respect snakes . this is the 4th snake encounter this month and Sierra did well as she stopped immediately and waited for me to remove the snake from the trail . This was a harmless gopher snake but the other 3 encounters were rattlers . We treated this snake as though it were dangerous . Good Girl Sierra !!
