Rattlesnake!

CC10

While recently hiking the Clevenger Canyon South Trail, I came across this rather large rattlesnake coiled in the middle of the trail.  I was looking upward toward a large boulder in the distance and did not see the snake until that chilling telltale rattling sound reached my ears.  From that point forward I kept my eyes on the trail ahead!  This was but one of three snakes we saw on this hike, but was by far the largest and most dangerous.

    Well, it doesn’t look like the camera was shaking too badly, so you must have survived. Neat picture.
