Rattlesnakes In Them Thar Hills

We were hiking the Appalachian Trail just north of Neels Gap and ran in to this Timber Rattlesnake crossing the path during a hike to Wolf Laurel Top. 

Fortunately, Ken was leading us because both Brett and I were listening to our iPods to motivate us up an 800′ incline. Let that be a lesson … if you plan to rock out during your hike, then take position in the back of the pack!
