Here are some pictures from our recent walk in the local nature area. There are apparently several trails and streams in this 89 acre nature area. The property that we're most interested in has 1.5 acres that adjoins this nature area, so if all goes well we'll be living within walking distance of this stream.
This is Maria and her rattlesnake. During a recent conversation about snakes, I mentioned that if you see a snake you should get away quickly, especially if it's a rattlesnake. Maria said, "Ya, but you can PLAY with MY rattlesnake."
