Day 73 of 100 Days of Gratitude
Thursday, August 23, 2018
Wow...am I behind in recording great days. Yesterday we got our first rain in a couple of months. We're in a high wildfire danger with fires on all sides of us. So I am grateful beyond words for the rain. And hope for more.
I started a short walk this a.m but it continued on to climbing a very steep mtn near my house. Then I took a wrong turn & ended up with a very long walk. My shoes were buried in mud. When I got home, I stepped onto a clump of grass to try to get it off...when a snake's tail whipped my leg. The snake was about 20" long...(I didn't measure it!)
I'm grateful it wasn't a rattlesnake which we had dozens of at our ranch where I grew up and which can be deadly.
It was an "exciting" ending to a long, strenuous hike in the Rocky Mtns. Whew!
