Big Black Snake

We decided to camp out on our property this past weekend and while we were sitting around enjoying a nice camp fire, Trevor noticed that we had a visitor.

Closer view of Alan holding the snake


Robin checking it out

Alan guessed the snake to be over 5 feet long


After everyone was done looking at it and taking pictures, we set it free in the woods.


Black snake or not you will not find me holding it, but it was neat to look at it anyway!

Hi Staci, we live in PA. and as far as I know it is just a common black snake. They are good for keeping rodents and poisonous snakes away and most black snakes are pretty harmless!

What a snake!!

We love checking your blog to keep up with you all. Thank you so much for posting the details of life!

The guys might like Daniel's web site - TrashCars.net - I don't think he had it finished last time we were up.

There's one on there that I thought you might enjoy, too:
"What is a mommy?"

We would love to see you all again soon!
