Description

This medium sized young rattlesnake was sleeping on the side of a main trail apparently digesting a big meal. Since this area is heavily traveled by hikers and dogs, I spent some time encouraging this youngster to move off into the safety of the brush, but eventually he decided to climb a rather precarious wall into an overhanging bush.
