Description

I own no land, instead I have wheelestate. I’ve been a full time RVer since 1997. Working summers as a Park Ranger takes me to many beautiful places and playing during the winter takes me to many more. This blog is simply the story of my life's adventures.

Just slithering along

DSCF8599 Gopher snake Roaring Springs trail NR GRCA NP AZ (1024x789)

As I strolled roved along the Bridle trail the other afternoon the family in front of me kept looking back over their shoulders. I thought maybe I’d forgotten my hat, or something. But then they turned around and pointed out this Gopher snake trying to hide after crossing the trail in front of them.

Great! You didn't tell me there were snakes here... Guess that's just something else to have fun with while we're here...

Glad it was a gopher snake and not a rattler.

Good picture. Hope Gopher is not venomous.

I don't know the American snakes that well. I just happen to be one of those odd people who loves snakes though:) Great shot. Diane

Wonder if he's friends with my pal, the black spitting cobra?

I am so glad I didn't meet that snake. I have taken a few pictures of snakes but have great difficulty looking at them.

I imagine that you get loads of snakes in your part of the world. Always a scary sight seeing a snake on a trail.

So glad you did not scream and run, but rather took the photo. Snakes are fascinating creatures and the normal human fear of snakes often means that people miss a very intersting part of nature. Thanks for the photo.
