My husband and I will be planning a trip to Santa Fe Sept 12 - 16, 2008 and we love to hike and I do not mean downtown, although we will be doing a great share of that also. We would like to explore some of the wilderness hiking trails, BUT, I am extremely afraid of snakes, even if they are not dangerous. What are the chances of us coming upon them? Being from Northern MN we do not have to worry about seeing many. I have only seen one garter this year.
