A Snake in the Grass

While walking along the appropriately named Snake River in Idaho, I spotted this snake in my path. At first, I was uncertain as to whether or not to be concerned but soon recognized that this was a Pituophis catenifer or gopher snake. It does bear a resemblance to the Prairie Rattlesnake, so my caution was warranted.
