I climbed a fence and made my way through some snakey-looking grass to get out far enough in this field to take this picture. I actually was stomping the ground and yelling “Snakes, be gone!” as I walked forward. (The friend who told me to do this said it works… case in point, she’s never been bitten by a snake! :))
This field was absolutely covered in golden rod, and had this and two other structures on it… all looking somewhat ramshackled. I really wanted to get out to it, but honestly, the grass was too high, the ground too wet, and I was wearing slides, so I chickened out.
You can see this in better detail on my SmugMug site, as well as some other pictures from this trip. I’m adding to my “Nature” gallery every night. I hope you’ll check it out.
