    I saw a post somewhere about someone coming across a Mojave Green on BBT right after they dropped in from the trail head.

    25 years in So. Nevada, climbing/riding/hiking most w/e's and this was my first rattlesnake. It was pretty neat.

    I wish I could tell you what type of ratter that is but I'm not local to your area. It's a beauty, though!!!
