Peaceful gold canyon
Well it was mostly peaceful anyway. It was a bright and early start and in need of scenery change so I was off to Gold canyon for some peace and snake watching. I came up with a pretty cool loop I was a fan of, about half way thru I rolled right by a rattler, too late to stop or swerve, was so so close to my foot. I regained myself and said hello and took a picture, I proceeded to walk away and to my surprise even 50 feet away it was still raised up in full attack mode, those GC rattlers are pissy. Now rattled I was on high alert, ran into someone going backwards on phantom, might try that sometime, turns out I follow the guy now. Really pretty morning, stopped and hung out with the cows, turns out they eat cholla!!!!!!
