    Ugh, snakes! That one looks like the one we saw in the Grand Canyon – I think it was a bull snake? Gopher snake? I can’t remember.

    Beautiful hike, especially the cacti! I love desert hikes, they feel so exotic to me, but I will never get used to that dry heat.

      I love the dry heat! It’s much more comfortable than humidity. Hiking in 90 degree weather in Oregon? Stifling, dripping sweat and soggy feeling…same temp in the desert is almost comfortable! At least for me. 🙂

      Not sure what kind of snake. A friend thought it was a Diamond Back. I zoomed in on the picture and did see diamond shapes but…not sure!

    That snake is actually pretty cool to see! That is a big one!

    I would totally fry in Arizona LOL. I was getting sunburned just reading your post 😀

      It was kind of cool to see. And while I don’t necessarily LIKE snakes, I don’t really have a phobia (not like Anna). Now if it was a giant spider, I’d be comatose. LOL

      I actually didn’t get sunburned! I usually burn easily but I didn’t this time!
