We saw a snake yesterday.
I don’t think I like snakes. They’re just slithery and really sort of freak me out.
I’ve seen mice running around in our house in New Hampshire, have managed to catch the scorpions we’ve had under cups, but snakes…
The Mr., the daughter who’s home from college and I were out for a hike along with our dog, Brady yesterday. Being in the desert, we are very aware that there’s a high probability we’ll see a snake on our hikes, especially this time of year, but one can become a bit lackadaisical.
We were walking along the path behind some houses before heading off into the desert and at the same time my daughter and I spotted it. Actually, spotted the dog standing over it and sniffing.

We both yelled at him simultaneously to move away from it and surprisingly enough he did as the snake gingerly slithered off down the bank and into the bushes.
Brady didn’t seem too concerned about him perhaps it’s because he’d gone through Rattlesnake training when he was younger. You can never be too sure with your pups, so I figured it might be a good thing to do.
Rattlesnakes are dangerous and not to be messed with. Fortunately, the snake we encountered was a California Kingsnake and is not venomous. In fact, he eats other snakes, so he’s a good Rattler protector!
You can see one of those and other Arizona desert dwellers here.
And did you know that the act of searching for amphibians or reptiles is called “herping”. I didn’t. See, you learn something new every day, don’t cha’ now? You just never know what I’ll throw at you amongst the recipes.
I’m not sharing this with you to discourage you from visiting our beautiful state of Arizona. Quite the contrary. Y’all just need to be aware of your surroundings and what’s going on. Come visit. You won’t be sorry. Just make sure you don’t do it over the summer when it’s 120 degrees F. Ick.
