Sorry for the unexpected hiatus – work intervened rather significantly in the last week. But I was still walking and I saw something I had not yet seen before! I suspect for a large number of people seeing a snake crossing the path wouldn’t be something that makes them happy, but it was for me. I like snakes. He moved into the shade under a basalt boulder as the day was quite warm. He’s about 3 feet long.
