I'm planning to travel to Palm Springs in January or February this winter. I'm a bit worried because I'm very scared of snakes. I realize that there are snakes in the area and when I go to a preserve, canyon, national park, etc I may see one and I think I will be ok with that. But, I'm wondering if there are many snakes to be found in the more commercialized areas such as golf courses, at the resort hotels in the surrounding areas and in Palm Springs itself. I think it's one thing to be on a hike and see a snake, but it's another to be lounging by the pool and have one surprise you! I hope I'm just being paranoid here. If you could please give me an idea of how common snake sightings are that would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
