One morning at dawn, I went to a hilltop overlooking a nearby lake.  The air felt chilly and crisp, the area surrounding the lake covered with mist.  The eastern sky was assuming a pinkish tint as sunrise approached. Later in the morning I ventured into a bog, cold water seeped through my boots, numbing my feet in a matter of half an hour.... This is cobra plant country.
