Nature Bats Last Front Range Colorado rattler rattlesnake

I didn’t see the rattler until it was only a few feet away. Two other riders were stopped in the middle of the trail, and when I asked what was going on, one of them replied, “There’s a rattler in the trail.” To be honest, between the time of day and clouds, I don’t know if I would have even seen the snake at all if it weren’t for that rider’s warning.

Be careful out there.
