I have run into two of these things today. I do not like snakes. Riding up Corner Canyon on BST going north to CC road there was a rather big one of these. About 4 feet long. I thought it was a rattle snake when I first set eyes on the little monster. He was stretched across the trail sunning him self. I almost crashed trying to get out of my pedals. The evil looking bugger would not move either. I had to walk the bike off the trail to get away. Yuck. I do not like snakes. Then I go home and E is mowing the lawn and has just broken the lawn mower for the second time today and as I am walking down my stairs to the back yard there is another one of these little buggers at the bottom of the stairs. I almost stepped on him. Geez. I can go years with out seeing a snake and today 2 in one day. Susan and the kids think this is really cool. They would love nothing more than to hold one of these in my face and watch me squirm. Gotta love family. I looked this little guy up and he is a Bull Snake. I am hoping the one in the yard goes and visits the neighbors on a permanent basis.
