Be on the look out! Watch out!

RATTLES SNAKES are out on the trail making an appearance. Some are a little testy upon waking up after a long sleep.

Awareness of your surroundings is essential and extreme caution must be exercised during an encounter with dangerous wildlife. Remember, the wildlife don’t want to be bothered any more than you do.

The photo was taken on the BCNRT, but could have been anywhere.
