Large Rattle Snake

They haven't started the construction in Slate Canyon yet so we have gone up it the last three days. At the top of the trail today I found a large Rattle Snake. It was hard to count the rattles on his tail seeing as I didn't want to get too close but it was somewhere between 8 and 12. I guess he never felt to intimidated because even though he coiled up he never shook his rattles at us.

I was thinking I need to start taking my camera with me again so I would have new images for the blog, but then I forgot to get it in the rush to get out the door this morning. So today's image is from a ride back in April. We are going to go back to this spot tomorrow. There won't be near as much snow on the mountain but a lot more green on the trees.
