Thankful for a chill in the air this morning, and wet leaves, or I might not have seen this 4-5 foot long rattler while GPSing. Or he might have been awake. He was about as big around as my forearm, maybe a touch bigger in the middle. I let him live. Only worried if I have to go mark in that area again. It is pinned on our maps.
