Tessa thought she'd try too.
We went hiking out in Laguna's canyons. This is the first family hike that we've done. It went very well (except for the occasional snake spotting!)
Yes, that IS a rattler (I think this is the first one I've ever seen in the wild!) I don't know about all these first encounters that I've been having with reptiles. They sure aren't helping me get over my phobias!
