I saw 3 rattlers 2 years ago in that exact location. In fact he looked like that one with lots of black. One I almost jumped on (landed 6 inches away) one,glad he slithered off the rock and away from me before I jumped back to the middle of the river. I've always heard Elkmont had alot of snakes, maybe there is really something to that.
