Right as I rounded the corner on a 4+ mile hike, I saw this guy getting some sun. After I cleaned my pants, I took some pictures. Then patient waited for him to leave the area so that I could walk, no run, back to the car... another 2 miles away!

It's a Diamondback Rattlesnake, a good 4 feet long and probably around 4+ inches in diameter at his thickest part. Those are just guesses, I didn't get a chance to put the measuring stick to him.

Never once did he shake his rattlers at me. Never once did I start crying. We all made out well in the end.
