A Snake, It's A Snake

I went for a lovely hike yesterday. There were gorgeous flowers everywhere. Poppies...

...Columbine. There were a bunch of lizards out sunning themselves too.

We also happened to come across a small snake.

Not just any snake though. This one was a baby rattlesnake. For those of you not in the know, the baby rattle snakes are far more dangerous than the giant ones. They don't control their venom very well, so when they bite you, they give you all they got. We chased this one off the trail so no one would step on it.

My favorite bit of the hike is the farm at the end. It is a demonstration farm and every spring there are baby sheep, pigs, and goats. This little guy couldn't have been more than a week old.

OMG, I hoped you were kidding about the snake but you weren't! Eeeeeek.

Anyhoo, I'm glad the rest of the walk was lovely, but gah. Snake.
