While scrambling on the east side of Yosemite Falls in hope of reaching the brink of Lower Yosemite Falls (following the climbers' trail), I came upon a friend: the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake! I was lucky - I almost stepped right on it; since I was by myself off-trail, that would have been trouble. Although not common at this elevation, please be careful when walking around the Yosemite Falls area - the only other snake I've ever seen in the park (California Mountain Kingsnake) was also near the falls, on the way to Upper Yosemite.
