Notes

Definitely one of the five or six most beautiful snakes I have ever seen. Saved from certain death on a decently high-traffic road before a cold front blew in.

Thank you! This was one was insanely, insanely lucky. The odds of seeing one of these guys in only one hour of cruising is extremely low from what I understand.
