Encounter with a Cobra

I might have slept some four or five hours, and a dreamless and satisfying sleep it was.

We had seen signs that several interesting large mammals had been in the area; coyote, and bobcat, and had been watching beautiful woodpeckers skirting from tree to tree. All of a sudden, the woods became quiet, and all signs of the wildlife disappeared...
