    Where are we going?
    And why are we in this handbasket?

    Not kidding about snake boots, we have plenty.

    Even a road that closes twice a year for amphibian migration.

    Snake Road. Ii was supposed to open today, but it's been warm and the snakes are dawdling, so one more week.

    I thought all the snakes were busy doing election ads at the moment. Had only one rattler on my last hike, and that was about the upper limit of their range. Those relatively high altitude ones are fairly timid, but the big diamondbacks at lower elevations can be downright aggressive. The only fatal bite cases I can recall occurred around reservoirs. Boaters would step on shore in bathing suits, where the rattlers hang around awaiting rodents. They'd get bitten, panic, and run, which is the worst thing you can do.
