    Hi Bryan,

    I plan on visiting my brother in June and he lives in Sierra Vista, AZ. I’m hoping you know the cochise county area well and can tell me some good locations to go herping.

    Nice photography. I guess it would be kind of dumb for me to ask you if being that close to snakes is scary. But, I am amazed that you can get that close to so many. Wow, thank you for the link!! NIce.

    I wouldn’t describe it as ‘scary’ but there’s definitely some adrenaline involved; heightened sense of awareness and the ‘procedure’ kicks in. I’ve seen hundreds of rattlesnakes in the wild at this point, so it’s hard to keep that little bit of necessary fear that keeps me safe. Interesting animals that demand respect, that’s for sure.
