yes its beautiful but you have to learn to keep your eyes open. Its been a long time since I was in that country but if I remember right you have copper heads, timber rattlers and an occasional bear. Don't let that frighten you to much. You will get used to it. I have stomped around the Arizona desert where there were rattlers, scorpions and tarantulas. I have also hunted the swamps in Florida. You just have to learn to trust your instincts and you will be fine.
