Shields up is a term from Star Trek! So, I guess those of us that are from that generation or still love being a "trekie" then you will understand my metaphor!
Due to our very dry winter here in Zion Canyon we are having a more than usual snake outpouring!
Yep........you heard me right!
Luckily......I have never had a rattlesnake in my yard but plenty of other visitors. We actually had a snake in the store the night before last. We have killed a couple of rattlesnakes down in the campground and in the river beds just this past week ( I live right on the river bed). LORDY!
You can imagine what they are looking for......no not me although I do believe that to be true in my very scarey mind and fear of snakes. But they are looking for water.
Now.......back to photos!
MOTHBALLS! When I first moved up here I was told that if you put mothballs everywhere then that will divert the snakes and keep them away!
I apologize in advance to the neighbors who have already noticed the smell.
He said "it reminds me of my grandparents basement"!
Running with a broken toe that is still mending is something I want to avoid!
On Thursday I saw a lizard and nearly fell over one of the planters!
May The Force Be With Me!
