Snakes on a Trail
Plus: How fear fuels anxiety fuels mental decline
While mountain biking the other day, I had to hit the brakes for a rattlesnake, the third of three I saw in two days here in the Phoenix area. This snake, at the McDowell Sonoran Preserve, was stretched out across the trail and not inclined to move, until I skidded up. My biker buddy and I dismounted and walked well around it, of course.
