It was a beautiful spring day, we are on horseback at Kings Mountain State Park in Blacksburg, South Carolina when we heard a strange sound. It sounded like air being let out of a tire to me and my friend Jeff. But it was a rattlesnake. A huge rattlesnake was spotted at this South Carolina State Park.
For those of you that go to that park regularly, you know they are there but it is rare to roll up on one, especially one like we saw. That joker was at least six feet long! Today is my snake a versary. We saw him three years ago today but it is something I think about every year on this day.
My neighbors and I were out for a ride and heading in when we heard the sound. Traditionally you hear a rattle but this guy just hissed and we were within inches of him. My friend Rosie pointed him out as he was up and about and luckily traveling in the opposite direction. I have to admit. It was exciting because we were not in any danger at the moment of discovery. Timber Rattlesnakes are indigenous to the area and I hear several have been spotted already this season. Wanna see my video?
