Over the weekend, I spent time with my twin brother. We hiked up to Guinea Pond, near the Sandwich Range Wilderness in the White Mountain National Forest. It was easily one of the nicest days yet this summer. The pond itself lacked any decent shoreline or access to the main portion of the pond. So we inflated the trail raft and waded through the mucky/bog-like area until it was deep enough to use the raft.
On the way back, while passing through a power transmission line clearing, we noticed two green snakes laying among some grass along the edge of the path. If they had not moved, we would never have spotted them. Below is a photo of one climbing a little spruce.
