Creek Critters

Standard

Today Brad and I earned some extra money for helping a friend move! Because it was such an incredibly hot day and moving is a terrible bitch, we decided to go to Sullivan Falls and dip our feet in the cool water with our friend KT.

The bad news is, I’m having trouble finding my camera and I was unable to take pictures.

The good news is, KT did, in fact, have her camera and got a few shots of some cute little animal buddies to share. She’s pretty awesome like that.

While we were dipping our feet in one of the immensely cold pools eroded into the top of the waterfall, we noticed this little guy triumphantly scaling the mossy rock face beside us.

Upon further inspection we noticed he had a big fat belly, probably full of little baby salamanders. We stopped calling him “he.”

In this picture you can get a great view of the little bitty dots all over her underside, as well as the awesome circle-spots on her back. You can click any of these images to zoom in.

Just when we thought our adventure was over and we climbed the path back up to the parking area, KT shouted! She almost stepped right onto this little brown snake. When I was a kid, I would have picked him right up and let him slither all through my fingers. Now, I’m not so brave. I carefully picked him up with a stick before trying to touch him to make sure he wasn’t dangerous. While KT tried to get a picture of him hanging from said stick, my hands were very very shaky, and those photos didn’t turn out so well. We said goodbye to the little snakey with a gentle pet on his back. Or tail. Maybe both.
