    No like it! I regularly employ those steps for the purposes of exercise.

    Hey, it only wants our gophers, not your sneakers.

    I saw that snake – or another one just like it – cross BH Blvd. last week. He/she is absolutely gorgeous!

    That scares the hell out of me, just looking at it.

    It looks awfully proud of its chalk handiwork there.

  12. Michelle Glauser says:

    Wow, that’s so cool!

  13. Kelly says:

    Is that really a wild snake slithering around Bernal? What if a small dog encounters it while walking?

  14. Bernal Lover says:

    I saw a Cat, and one of these Snakes about a year, and a half ago on Powhattan & Prentiss. The Cat was doing what most Cats do. It was toying with the Snake, flipping it up in the air with its paws, & hitting at the Snake. And the Snake just wanted to be left alone, it kept trying to get away from the Cat…soon the Cat got bored, and moved on.
