Turns out Matilda is a lizard chaser just like her Daddy and Uncle Dan. Joshua Tree gave her plenty of opportunities to practice her skills. The amount of wildlife we encountered there was astounding and a real treat for our entire animal loving family. Thankfully the only rattlesnake we saw was the rapidly decomposing one near our camp bathroom. Of all the animals we saw the road runner seems to be most memorable for Matilda. Daily now she tears around the apartment building hallways yelling "Road Runner, Road Runner!" sticking her neck out and pretending to go really fast.
