RATTLESNAKE SIGHTING: Just a warning so you’re on the lookout, on Saturday, May 26, we encountered a rattlesnake about a mile from the entrance on our way back from our hike. It was about 3 1/2’ long. We were able to locate a long branch to tap the ground around him to get him to move off the path and into the grass, but he was not happy and it took some tapping to get him to move. His rattler was still going and on the trail as we ran by. Great hike so rating it a 4, but not sure we’ll be back to it soon after seeing that - we understand we were in his space, but still scary to see.
