Snake

This guy was coiled up sitting by the trail. I did not even see it. As I walked by, I was suddenly startled by its rattling. By the time I took the camera out, he had begun to move away.

has a hell of a rattle! Usually the buttons break off before they get that long! (Well...at least here in the east.)

Thank you Bob,

Although I have done a fair amount of hiking in the southwest, this was the first time that I came face to face with a big snake. The odd thing was that the next day, I came across another snake.

Lose the head, keep the rattler, feast on the meat.

They say it tastes just like chicken. Does it?

Have to confess, never had snake, but had alligator meat. It's a little gamy, but if done right it could taste like chicken.

But seriously, if I found myself out there hungry, I wouldn't dream of letting this guy get away.

I had some once--many years ago at a restaurant in Atlanta that served various game meats. Frankly, I don't recall what it tasted like. I didn't hate it.
