Eeeeeek!

My wife and I have been guests at Buckhorn many times over the last 20 years.  We have had countless pleasant and memorable experiences.  However, there is one memorable moment which does stand out.  While moving luggage from our car to our room one August afternoon, my wife had an unforgettable encounter.  First, you must know that she has had multiple knee surgeries and is normally limited in her mobility.  As she held an outside door ajar for me to carry luggage inside, a harmless but six foot long black snake came through the door before I could and it brushed against her leg.  My wife reacted with a scream and leapt across the entrance hallway, the fastest she had moved in many years by the way.  Needless to say, the poor snake wanted back outside as much as my wife wanted it there.  Buckhorn staff quickly helped the snake retreat to the wild.  While the encounter was short-lived, my wife still gets teased about her reaction to the infamous snake to this day.  James and Joyce Parker
