Return to Narcisse

I waited for a week after my first visit to Narcisse and since we have had several quite warm days in a row, I decided to head back out there in the hopes that many more snakes would be active.  Rain was forecast for today, but you never know if it actually will rain or… Continue reading Return to Narcisse
