I didn't take this photo, because I wasn't running with my camera yesterday. But, look at what I found stretched across my path... a >3.5' gopher snake. It was blocking all but a few inches of the path. I tried throwing rocks at it to get it to move, but I kept missing... LOL! They really are harmless. I finally ended up stepping over its tail.
Supposedly, rattlesnakes are on the rise. I haven't seen one yet this year, but I'm keeping my eyes peeled!
