Since we are now in snake season here in New Mexico, it was time for me to finally "bite the bullet" and get a pair of boots.
I headed into Gallup to Zimmerman's Western Wear and bought a pair of Ariat boots. The price was reasonable and they boots fit great.

They will be necessary to wear during the summer, especially when I have to go into the second acre after the RV garage is built. We have bull snakes (those are non-poisonous) and rattlesnakes here. The boots will be protective if I happen to come close to a rattler. I have already seen one bull snake here.
Bull snakes allegedly kill rattlesnakes. The locals are happy when a bull snake takes up residence on their property.
