All of these pictures were taken in the Pawnee Grassland in Colorado. It was pretty cool when I took the last two pictures of the rattler. I dropped pebbles on him and never could get him to move. I wanted him to move because he was lying right in front of the Pawnee Grassland entrance sign and I was afraid someone might get out to take a picture of the sign and step on him.
The grassland was really a pretty area. We didn't have time to spend as much time there as I would have like to spent. Even though I've been to CO many, many times this was the first time that I had ever been there.
