It was a bright sunny, Saturday morning, Oct. 20.2012 when the IDSS Adventure Team re-visited the Mt. Maarat,Timberland Heights trail.
The trail was perfect. Not too muddy and not to dusty. Just right.
The mountain air was fresh and the views were stunning.
There were uphill tracks and we rode in with no problems.
There were also downhill tracks that were quite exciting to ride on.
I think it is snake breeding season this time of year. We saw a green rat snake crossing the trail. We almost hit it. It is more than 5 feet long.The snake has a beautiful, brightly-colored, shiny, scaly body.
It has a pair of bright, yellow, eyes and a sky blue tongue. Very nice. We allowed it to pass unharmed. Other riders saw smaller green snakes too.
Afterwards, we ate at Giant’s Store.
It was a fun and exciting ride for the IDSS Adventure Team.
