Jim walked around the other side of the picnic table on our site and reached down to pick something up off the ground – and heard a hiss…..he was inches from this rattlesnake! Jim backed off and the snake moseyed on along and disappeared behind a pile of lava rock. We caught a glimpse of his rattle and he gave it a little shake as he headed away. I wonder if he’s been hanging out that close to us all summer??
