Rattlesnake!

We saw one!

This evening!

Along our favorite nearby neighborhood trail!

We approached it, though keeping a safe distance!

It rattled at us!

It was freaking awesome!!

Here's a picture! Woo hoo!

When U approached it, though keeping a safe distance, WHO was in the lead? You or Carrie?????
Uncle from 'Normal"

I was definitely in the lead--but Carrie got curious and bravely came up just as close as I did. I would say we got up to about three or four feet from it. At that point it rattled at us, and headed off into the scrub.

Carrie's sister Beth was along with us. She kept her distance from all of this!
