Today we went on a nice little hike in Waywayanda State Park. We went to see a small grave yard where some of our friend's family is buried. When we first set out we saw a bear, the dogs were great and didn't chase it, so we got a great look at him. Later right when we turned around to start back, we came upon a very large Timber Rattlesnake. As Monty approached it I could see a huge snake, and my first thought was Boa! I quickly realized Timber! Gratefully my dog knows the command stay and he did. The sound of the Rattle was really cool. We also saw a Garter and a baby Dekays Brown snake. Great hike!
