Wild Rose Pass, Texas

Question

Adventure Location: Seminole Canyon State Park, Texas

Adventure Date: 3-2-2017

WE are now in wild country, critter wise that is. Some of the know critters are mountain lions, Mexican wolves, rattle snakes, coyotes and many other critters that do not consider the humans to be at the top of the food chain.

After arriving here today and getting a decent lunch put to work generating energy, the OFM took the Teams out for a walk which turned into quite an adventure. But before we get to all that the Teams have a question for our readers.

We were carefully exploring a new to us canyon and followed it up to where it went under the old railroad bed via a culvert. The opening to the culvert is about two feet wide and three feet tall. From the side we were on there is a scramble of basketball size rocks about six feet tall to get to the opening that is slightly covered with woody brush.



If an old fat man was to get on his stomach and slither up that pile of rocks like a snake that is probably already hiding in the rocks to take a picture through the culvert, is he being brave (his word) or stupid (our word)?

Please vote in the comments. The Teams do not consider that to be the best way of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. I would call it risky - I wouldn't do it. I doubt you'll find any large critters in there because it's blocked with the rocks and brush, but sure could be a lot of small critters. Spiders, rats, snakes, bats, small wild mammals and ???. DON'T DO IT! (That's me shouting! LOL)

  2. You know, I wouldn't bet on it, but I doubt if there is any treasure in there. . . Not worth the fuss, bruises, cuts, and scratches you would get doing it.

  3. Bet there is a scorpion or two as well. I have been stung several times and it isn't fun.

  4. Although, it might be those critters way of having toooo much fun, I think your teams would think otherwise! Slithering is never a good way to have too much fun.

  6. Extremely brave, I'm thinking! The header is awe inspiring. Have you ever encountered a mountain lion, Barney?

  7. I'm with this one posted by Harriet, "Slithering is never a good way to have too much fun." Makes me hurt just to think about doing that.

  8. Not a good idea, I don't think any large animals would be in there but rattlers yes, scorpions yes and yes their sting is like wild fire for days.
