A couple days ago on a training hike (they’re all training hikes) I saw a snake among the partially submerged rocks at a little creek junction. Yesterday I saw another snake in the same place. This morning, I saw a snakeskin on a rock just under the surface of the water. I looked closer at the striped pattern. It wasn’t a snakeskin. It was a plastic wrapper with a UPC barcode printed upon it. It looked a whole lot like a striped snakeskin. Can’t scan it.
