    small snake pic.jpg I had just finished my ride at the Estrella MTN track and saw this 3 to 4 ft rattle snake just hanging out. Its awesome to see this kind of stuff out on the trail. Ben

    Not as scary as your encounter but just as intriguing nonetheless...

    Sorry but I missed the other picture and I agree with the western patch nose call. I have the following link bookmarked for ID-ing the snakes I get snaps of; http://www.reptilesofaz.org/herp-snakes.html
