|It's May in Southern California - watch out for me|

The one that woulda bit me.
On a backpack trip in Santa Anita Canyon in the San Gabriels, I was walking along and was right next to this Southern Pacific rattler when it popped off at me. It was well camouflaged against the gray bedrock, so I missed it. No matter how many times you hear that sound in your life, it will always cause you to jump.
