My Snake Wrangler
After spending several hours exploring the falls we made our way up into the Adirondack Mountains and found a camping spot at Limekiln Lake State Park. We had a beautiful campsite and enjoyed our night there. If you can believe it, we used cheap swimming pool air mattresses under our sleeping bags and liked them more than our bulky camping air mattresses. Very comfy!
The next morning our path took us by a natural gorge and waterfall and of course we had to stop and hike in to see it. Very pretty!
On our way back to the car Haden’s wish was fulfilled - we saw a snake!
Apparently, he noticed us too.
After I took a few shots, Haden was unleashed and he went to work on catching the unsuspecting fellow.
This little snake struggled a lot so it took Haden a few minutes to sooth him. In the above photo he has the head held down because it kept trying to bite.
You can see that Haden is very gentle with him.
Finally, boy and snake seem content.
