I saw this on the ramp at the start of Nice Crack Climb yesterday. Did something recently happen there or was someone smashing ketchup packets? It looked a lot like blood to my partner and me. http://www.flickr.com/photos/harryyoungphoto/6883448406/

looks fake. why would blood be like that there? it's not natural looking at all. looks like they took halloween blood pellets and smashed them a few times in a line.

i bet it'll come right off with some water

From my completely unqualified position I would say it looks fake, but I love the Subject line, it sucked me in!

Definetely not a blood splatter pattern from trauma. Where is Dexter when you need him? Maybe an early season blood letting ritual to get back into the "swing" of things?

It's blood.
Talked with a friend (J.E.) who walked past the area immediately after the accident happened. Leader fell, hit his head. He was wearing a helmet, did not lose consciousness, walked back to his car.

That's a pretty good amount of drippage. Hope he is OK. Head wounds bleed like you think you are gonna bleed to death.

I am surprised that the skinks didn't clean that up but maybe it is too close to the carriage road for them to chance it.

Vampire skinks never venture far beyond Millbrook.

Skinks LOVE blood. Most critters will not miss a chance for that much nutrition so well concentrated, not to mention the salt content.

I would have guessed it was fake, too. Hard to picture how a head knock would paint the rock like that. Glad he walked away from it.
