I think this is a Garter Snake but I didn't see any red on it and I am definitely not a herpetologist.
Here is a view from the hill above the fire station/nature center.

Sunday, is our October field trip to the Ortega Highway from San Juan Capistrano. We will be going into the Cleveland National Forest to explore the magnificent floral species on the 2.2 mile San Juan Loop, the great sycamores of Caspers Wilderness Park, a breathtaking view of Lake Elsinore and the legendary candy store. At 1pm we will meet in the standard EcoLink field trip meeting spot: Ralph's parking lot in Marina Pacifica. I expect we can explore the Cleveland and get back by sunset.
And remember EcoLink's monthly meeting is Thursday October 28th at the Unitarian Church on Atherton and Bellflower at 7pm.
