The heat is back! Snakes for whatever reason like to sunbathe on the dirt trail. Watch out when stopping to take breaks. These two are dead but gives you an idea of what to look out for.



Dang! You got shocks, pegs... lucky! You ever take it off any sweet jumps?

It's normal to spot snakes along the dirt hike and bike trail but this one was spotted on a bridge in between Memorial and the I-10 parking lot. This bridge is heavily used by families and young kids because of the proximity to and from the play ground.

This is a 5 - 6 foot Texas Rat Snake.

The top two pictures are old and I'm not sure what happened to the snakes but I would never try and kill one. Most of the time they runaway and if they don't, I do....
