We found it sitting in the middle of a road while we were driving, so we stopped and got it to move back up into the leaf litter.

As my luck would have it, I didn't have my good camera with me...

Description from Wikipedia

Crotalus is a genus of venomous pit vipers found only in the Americas from southern Canada to northern Argentina. The name is derived from the Greek word krotalon, which means "rattle" or "castanet", and refers to the rattle on the end of the tail which makes this group (genera Crotalus and Sistrurus) so distinctive. 32 species are currently recognized.

No range data available.
