It was a year ago today the I stepped within striking distance of the little guy.
There is no way to explain the feeling that comes over you when you hear it “go off” at your feet in the dark (yep, totally in the dark)
Actual lighting after he slowly retreated up the slope.
I still walk cautiously next to that spot, even though there is no way he will be there. #hiking #arizona #desert #rattlesnake
