I don't wish them any ill will but I'd rather not be around them. Especially coppermouth rattle-moccasins! We see at least 1 snake every trip to Sinks. Always heightens our awareness of rocks and grasses on the trail. And sometimes influences where we are prepared to climb or go.
Yeah I figured out later on that it was indeed a Timber and not a Diamondback... Good looking out guys! Glad I encountered him in town and not while bushwhacking across the top of the mountain looking for boulders!
