Early trail run
I had to make a trip over to Bryan and College Station this morning. On the way back early this afternoon, I received a call from my son in Edinburg that he was on his way up to Huntsville for business and would stop by this evening for dinner. So, I went out to the park at 3 p.m. when it was 100 degrees and ran 4.7 miles, mostly on the new trails. I ran over a snake before I realized what it was. I stopped, when back and checked it out. Non-poisonous green snake. In any case, it was the first snake I have seen on the trails this summer. However, a few days ago, I found a Copperhead on the front porch next to the door. Looking for water, I suppose.
