somewhere beneath there, there were rattlers. I heard at least 2 of them. for as much as I'd like to see one in the wild, I don't want to have one spring up and whack a dork on the rocks.

not quite sure which view of rocks this is, but after stumbling to the end of the "trail" I came upon what looked like a clearing and it was - at least on the other side of these rocks.
