Rattler!



We visited the Lake Tahoe area this past week with friends. We had a great time and also some adventure. Yesterday we hiked to the top of beautiful horse tail falls which enters into desolation wilderness area (http://www.waterfallswest.com/waterfall.php?id=227) . The hike is 2.8 miles and reaches elevation of 6,800 feet. It took us about two hours to get to the top. Along the way my friend almost stepped on a Western Rattle Snake. Thankfully the rattles were blazing and he did not get bit. On the way back down the mountain we saw another Rattler on the side of the trail. This one was just little easier to take some pictures….


Here they are!
