Yoo 675 - There Is A Snake Picture In This One

In case you didn't read the title, there is a snake picture in this one. It's below. Brace yourself before the scroll.

So, it began as a normal evening stroll. The light was golden and the air was hot and muggy. Roscoe was a tank, refusing to let himself breath on the leash.

Then we saw a girl standing frozen ahead on the trail.

"There's a snake up here! A real snake! It's got a rattle and everything! What do we do?"

What we do is take pictures of it, obviously.




Here it is:

It was a pretty good size. And quite content to take up the whole of the trail. I stood waaaay back and tossed pebbles at it to encourage it to slither off, but it didn't even flinch. Then a man walked up and tossed his Bill Miller cup at it. Still nothing.

Several minutes passed and, despite constant urging via pebbles, the snake was still planted in the middle of the trail.

It did slither off eventually and I was content to watch and wait. But the man felt the snake needed constant encouragement and tossed more pebbles. Well, one hit the snake and RECOIL. The snake was so angry. It was creepy.

And then I was like, we can just turn around...

But we continued on, and all was well. I was on heightened snake watch though. That's the biggest one I've seen out there in a while.

Have a great day :-)
