Lately I've taken up a new hobby: taking pictures of train trestle bridges. There's one that goes over the San Gabriel river in Texas that I can get within half a mile of but any further than that would require I wade through a good length of knee deep water.
I can't approach this particular trestle bridge from land because the land is all gated off private property. But, in Texas, navigable waterways are public property so I can approach the train trestle bridge that way.
The problem with wading in the water is that there could be water moccasins and I doubt I could out wade a water moccasin.
I have seem rain boots that go about up to my knee. Would those be sufficient?
I mean, maybe I could do a kayak or standup paddle board, too, but I'd have to lug those around for a decent distance before I'd be able to use them.
