Iâ€™ve seen snakes. No, Iâ€™m not counting any zoo sightings. Iâ€™m referring to riding a bike along a sun-dappled path, hiking a trail through a jumble of boulders, and even a few times around my local suburbs. Yep . . . seen â€˜em, nearly stepped on â€˜em, and have gladly circled wide of many short and long, still or slithering snakes.
