Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Chomp

steep ridge

This was in 2009 in Unicoi County, near Steep Ridge.   I haven’t been back lately.  By now, either the tree has eaten the support rods or, more probably, someone has come along and offed the tree.

As we readied to head up the ridge, a man warned us of rattlesnakes.  Up on the ridge, another man showed up pictures of some rattlesnakes he’d seen.

Most snakes would rather not make your acquaintance, thank you very much, but some, like the aggressive timber rattler, should not be challenged.  Leave.  Leave now.

We didn’t see any snakes that day.
