A New Friend?

I've been doing a lot of biking and trying to combine it with geocaching. I'm cautious about where I go -- sticking with the urban caches and saving the woodland ones for when the kids are with me.

Today I went after one that is placed near the Fannie Mae building in my town.  The street name cracks me up -- American Dream Way...

At any rate, there's a lovely little park next to the building and I saw all kinds of things there. Didn't find the cache -- I think it requires going under a bridge. I prefer to let my son do the stuff that requires crawling down where insects live!

The path was small rocks, so I got off my bike and started pushing through on the grass. As I came around a bend, I saw this:

A little later, around another bend I saw a chipmunk run off. I looked to the side of the path where he'd gone and thought, "oh, that's too bad. Someone has left some old rubber here.  I wish people would pick up their trash."

So I can't see videos at work (I assume the blank space at the end of the post is a video), but I'm going to make a WILD guess & say that you saw a snake :) I'll remember to check it out when I get home to see if I'm right.

OK, that was cool & creepy & I'm not sure I could have calmly taken a video :)
