We spent the day at narcisse snake pits. This Manitoba wonder contains North Americas largest congregation of snakes in one place. Our climate doesn't fair well for reptiles to thrive all year long. The red-sided garter snake has adapted to the cold winters in an underground tunnel paradise formed in the limestone rich area. Snakes travel from all around in the fall and find solace and warmth underground. Then when the spring air warms they emerge and spend about a week um ah well.. lets just say assuring their existence. Even if you are not a big snake fan, we would recommend, at least once, experiencing this phenomenon.
|Hailey was the only on brave enough to catch and hold one of the snakes.|
|Wyatt was amazed with all the snakes slithering around.|
|View of one of four pits.This pit was by far the most active.|
|Mating Ball of Red-Sided Garter Snakes.|
|End of the trail. Lots of fun had by all.|
What kind of fun things have do you do over the summer months? Anything big planned this summer?
