sestrain said: I went out riding first thing this morning and spotted my first rattlesnake of the year and I have pictures.  He was stretched out with his head toward the side of the road.  It was a smooth area so I had a little speed, 7 to 8 mph.  I came within 2 or 3 feet of his tail.  This got his attention and he immediately coiled up into attack position.  He was about 4 feet long and wasn’t happy about being disturbed.  I stopped about 50 feet away to take my pictures.  Of course, he was gone 2 hours later when I came back heading home.  The other pictures are of a section of old highway 93 I ride.
