Today C and I took the day off and decided to go for a short ride on the American Tobacco Trail. Within the first mile I saw this snake in the creek bed running along side the trail. I only had the Canon SD790 (point and shoot) so I took the risk getting as close as I did. The rest of the trip was fairly uneventful.
The American Tobacco Trail is a 22+ mile rails-to-trails project located in the Triangle Region of North Carolina. The route crosses through the City of Durham; Durham, Chatham, and Wake counties; the planning jurisdictions of the Towns of Cary and Apex; and passes through the Lake Jordan project land of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
