Das rattlesnake

Being from the Querque, the rattlers are common the trail. I have never seen one in Colorado. “Get your ass off the trail!!”

A few more Fort Rollins pics.

    At least it was out in the open and did not ambush you are stalk you for miles, just kidding.

    looked like you were Blue Sky Trail, Hope you liked it, other than wildlife crossing

    PETA will be calling about snake abuse. IMBA will be calling about trail destruction. And I will be in the bathroom evac-ing my intestine from the fear of just seeing VIDEO of Mr. R. Snake. Yike! I hate me some snakes.

    Years ago a friend and I rode up at Matthew Winters for the first time. They have Rattlesnake Warnings posted all over the place and so we were a little freaked out. We were in that meadowishy section as you get closer to Red Rocks when all of a sudden he goes flying by me, screaming his ass off.
    He stopped about 100 yards after he passed me. Turns out he had a pinch flat. He thought that the snake was chasing him at 20+ mph. We laughed so hard for the rest of the day that we had a hard time making it back to the parking lot.

    Strictly speaking a rattlesnake “Klapperschlange” is female in German, hence it would be “Die Klapperschlange”.

    Calling it Das Rattlesnake was a joke. 🙂 but thanks for the info. That could be my new favorite word now.

    we get usually a few rattlers on the trails out here pretty often. that trail was pretty wide u guys could have made it by no problem. way worse when you are stuck on a tight singletrack!

    When I was riding my bike as a kid, I had a snake drop out of a tree and land around my neck. Freaked me out bigtime! The housekeeper came out and chopped its head off with a hoe. Memories…
