Sounds like a great experience in the mountains. The snake looks like he is ready to introduce himself with a quick bite. I may not of ran but it may have been because my heart stopped.
I may need to pack some of my daughter's baby wipes on my next trip so I can properly clean up after myself if I see one of those that close

Rattlers, bears, Oh My!
What's going on down there?
This site in the last 2 days has resembled an episode of Animal Kingdom.

Sam,

You better get a bullet proof bear suit if they somehow allow gun use in the National Parks, LOL. I think me and Hans saw you last fall ambling along the Greenbriar. Now that I think about it, I could of swore that bear smiled at us while we were standing on a rock in the middle of the river, trying to figure where to go if the bear started to cross the stream towards us.

Too many bears and snakes up Lynn Camp and Thunderhead. I don't think any of you guys should go up there and fish, it's just far too dangerous.

I'll be happy to take all the risks and bring back some photos and stories about the fish, but you guys just need to stay away because of the danger.

Jeff

The snake picture got me thinking. Cell phones don't work very well in the park so in the event you get bite by a snake how long do you have, what's the best methods to get out of the park?

Nice jab at my manhood Craig. I thought I held my composure very well for being about 6-12 inches from that Rattler. Second rattler I've seen over the years. This one was curled up the whole time just like in the picture and never made a rattle. Guess I'm so light footed it never knew I was there ! It was a great trip even though the Master Fisherman humbled me quite a bit!
