Found sunning on a trail at BFL. Almost stepped on it and then I realized what it was. Snake was hissing and flattening head and body more. After I picked it up, it seemed more stressed. Snake never struck at me, and once I put it on the ground, it quickly slithered into a nearby pile of brush. Such a cool snake.
