On the Appalachian Trail, we came across a sunning black rat snake Pantherophis obsoletus. Amos and Kona, Mike’s dog, were oblivious to the snake presence until we disturbed the snake.
Max Patch is a managed grassy pasture along the Appalachian Trail with easy access from the Asheville, NC area. I recently visited it with a friend from graduate school, Maureen, her husband, and our chihuahua mixes.
