The rattlesnake was very unusual, according to a park ranger. It was suggested it might have been due to unusual weather that year. I gotta tell you, I was surprised to see it because that picture is just along the trail going up along a well used trail; it made us awefully cautious in passing around as far and as high away on the other side as we could. As for Rae Lakes, it really is a nice place to visit.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
