Hiking in the Mountains
Went out hiking today with a friend and our toddlers in jogging strollers. When we were almost at the top of this long steep hill, quite a workout I might add, a big rattlesnake crossed our path. We stopped dead in our tracks and just watched it slither by. Hayden was quite mesmerized. I don't know if he got it, but I told him "Hayden, you have to watch out for snakes when wer'e out on the trails". He just kept staring at the rattler. Our mindless dog Daisy, on the other hand, kept barking and pulling on the leash thinking she could play with this venomous creature. I'd better take her to the vet and get her that preventive rattlesnake vaccine afterall.
