Snakes on a Ladder

Clear Creek Park has many garter snakes. They like the easy access to the creek and beaver ponds. The walkways provide an excellent location for them to bask in the sun, then slip away if danger comes near.

Ok, not so much a ladder as the elevated path through the marsh at Clear Creek Park in Silverdale, WA.

There have been a lot of garter snakes about recently, and because there is lots of food, some of them are quite large.
