Obey the Signs

We discovered this sign at the campsite. I did not want to see the snakes, but hoped to see alligators. But alas… there were snakes in the campground.

We first meet this Eastern Diamond Back Rattler.
Then Audrey discovered this snake near her feet while pulling down some clothes from the line. (She did not obey the 15 feet rule. )

She also did not scream or jump or act surprised. She calmly informed me, “Mom, there’s a black snake over where the clothes were hanging.”

We saw another snake while driving and the kids noticed a few small ones while we were hiking. I am thankful that we did not see many and I was never the one who saw them first!
