Any pics of the rattler from the B- group?
« on: May 02, 2011, 09:44:02 AM »
Near the end of the group ride yesterday the B- group got separated by a rattlesnake on Grandpa. Apparently Kevin and I rode by and riled it up, but never saw it, then the rest of the group got stopped in time. After several minutes of waiting, prodding with long sticks, and searching for a route around they gave up and went back the other way.

In all that time of poking and pondering did anyone thing to snap a picture? :-)

I ran over a Diamond Back on 1800 Sat am, also ran over another one at the TNR on the inner loop last week.
 
Gotta keep them eyes open and be ready with a good high "snake hop".
 
So far, I'm just making them mad for the people behind me....
