Now Daniel likes to fish in spots that are not "over-fished" meaning the fish are not so smart about hooks and bait. So he picked a remote area of the river.
We drove and drove down narrow gravel roads. Some really just meant for 4x4 but our minivan did pretty good! Especially with a trailer full of kayaks. Finally we reached a spot where another spring fed creek met up with the Buffalo. It was pretty and we were hungry!
It was hot.....
What does Jedd do.....
No fear. Doesn't even care about the snake!
After lunch I get out my 85mm only to have it FOG up completely due to the heat and humidity. The fog was all through the inside of the lens! Yikes!
I laid it in the sun to heat up and hoped it would clear up.
And I got these:
I was happy.
But I WAS NOT
getting back in that river.
Good thing we had a kayak with our gear in it to float across in this time!
Daniel later admitted he saw several other snakes back there as he was fishing!
Beauty vs fear.
