It goes like this. First, after all the kids from Debs park arrived, we went to check the oak woodlands herp trap. While we were walking to it we got a really good catch. Scott (the leader) was walking down the trail with me just behind and a good sized gopher snake slithered in front of us. Scott leaped on it, and we got to hold it! That was just the beginning. At the oak woodlands trap, we did not catch very much, so we hopped in the back of the ford, which was fun as always, and went to check the coastal sage scrub herp trap. We got there, and we found that we had caught an alligator lizard of good size. Scott let me hold it, although it was trying to bite my the whole time. He had ticks on his neck too, so that made me even more nervous. Then we were walking up the last wing of the trap and checked one of the funnel traps and Scott was like, "Woah, we caught a rattlesnake!" It turned out it was a baby rattlesnake and and Scott got it out and put it in a bucket. If he had brought his snake stick with him, we could have touched it. The patterns on it were amazing, though, and I could have looked at it flicking its tongue of black liquorish all day. But we let it go and went back to camp. While we were setting up the tents, which we got the poles mixed up, one of the visitors from Debs park spotted a mountain lion on a stump not 100 yards away. I, of course, did not believe it, but then other people began to gather around pointing their fingers in the same direction, I walked over and sure enough, there was a tawny mountain lion perched on this scraggly stump, just staring us down. It actually stood there for a little while, but he disappeared before I could get a good picture of him. Scott and Pete (Scott's boss) went after it into the woods a little to scare it off for good, for they were a little uneasy that a mountain lion was this close to a large group of people. So that cancelled our night hike and bird walk in the morning. At night we went on a night ride in the back of the ford truck to look for owls and western toads and Pacific and California tree frogs. Scott caught a western toad in a creek and he found a california tree frog in the same part of the creek. Then we drove on and stopped at this spot and got out recorded western screech owl calls. We listened intently and heard about two western screech owls, a barn owl, and a great horned owl and her chicks. Then we drove on and while we were driving, Abby and I saw a western screech owl fly over us. We were the only ones who saw it. We stopped at one spot to look for owls again but with no luck. We drove back, and at a different part of the creek Scott caught two pacific tree frogs, a green color phase, and a brown color phase. We then drove back, sat around the campfire, did the usual, as in told scary stories and ate smores. Then, being full and somewhat scared, we went to the tents. I think I got like three hours of sleep that night. I got in the tent at 11:30, and probably got to sleep at around 3:00 a.m. That was due to the Santa Ana winds that were relentless throughout the night at tearing at the tent and making annoying flapping and swishing noises. At night I heard the frogs and a barn owl and a poorwill (thats right not whippoorwill, but a poorwill) I woke up at about 6:30. Then I got up, had some breakfast, and then we went out to fix a herp array! We got to use pick axes to make trenches and drills and stuff. There were a lot of ticks there too, there was one on Ethan's shoulder and Ethan found one on my neck. That kinda creeped me out, since I couldn't feel it. Then we went back sweaty and dusty and had lunch, which consisted of PB&J, chips and cookies. We then took down the tents and the Debs park kids left. Before they left they gave back Sven, who they were going to hold hostage but at the last minute decided against it. We then put the tents in a shed and we went to the demo room to see the small gopher snake that he had caught under his washer. I got to hold that one a lot, since we were waiting for our parents. We put it in a plastic cage for a little, and we put sven it there too. The gopher snake was pretty terrified of Sven, what with his shotgun and all. Then my dad came and picked me up. Well, I know for a fact that is the longest paragraph I have ever written, I hope you like it. P.S. The kids from Debs park thought my hair made me look like Justin Beiber. It was pretty funny. At the end it started to get annoying though, because they were like "Justin Beiber went to the bathroom!" But, all in all, a really awesome camp-out.

Whoo, doggy that was really long comment! By the way, Sven is a little plastic figurine that Scott found somewhere. He looks like an elf with little elf shoes and a hat. But he also carries a shotgun. Maybe due to all the recent events with terrorism the north pole has had to take drastic measures...
