For the second time in my ~40 years, I stepped on a rattlesnake and lived to tell the tale. I had just jumped off a rock outcrop onto a slick rock wash area with fetid water beside it. I saw a commotion and the western diamondback I stepped on jumped into the pooled water, dropped the bird it had in its mouth and crawled back out and coiled up. Even this agitated, it never rattled once.

The good: More Weaver's Needle views, which I could stare at for days. Any time in the Supes is good. Saw a rattlesnake.
The bad: Stepped on said rattlesnake...
The ugly: Terrapin Trail. It is terrible and probably the last time I ever take it. Catsclaw acacia, almost no scenic views, etc. Although it did provide me a rattlesnake and gila monster last month...
