He was strung across a trail, I nudged him with a walking pole and he got irritated some what. But it was enough to get the rig by without rolling over it.

Very pretty! Do you know what kind of rattlesnake it is? I've seen two this year so far, both off of the PCT in the Campo area. They were darker and their patterns had a higher contrast than this one.

Yes, Colorado desert Red Diamond back rattlesnake. Seen a few of those. They like to sun them selves in flat spots between rocks right where you would plant your boot on a spirited day hike. Another benefit of hiking poles leading the way.

Haha yes my poles are out in front of me. I have found them in the rocks which would be the next step.

I see I am not the only one that uses poles that way. I like to give the ground extra vibrations so snakes know I'm coming and also to poke into areas I can't see before I step there, especially high grass or brush.
