I went for a lovely hike yesterday. There were gorgeous flowers everywhere. Poppies...
...Columbine. There were a bunch of lizards out sunning themselves too.
We also happened to come across a small snake.
Not just any snake though. This one was a baby rattlesnake. For those of you not in the know, the baby rattle snakes are far more dangerous than the giant ones. They don't control their venom very well, so when they bite you, they give you all they got. We chased this one off the trail so no one would step on it.
