My long time friend introduced me to a wonderful, scenic trail along Devil's Backbone Open Space in Larimer County. The blue sky stretched out before us and a large variety of wildflowers sprinkled everywhere were either blooming in glorious color or about to bloom.
Ready for a great new adventure, we got more than we bargained for right at the start of the trail, when a hiker ahead alerted us to the presence of a rattlesnake. We couldn't visually locate it until hearing it's rattle and realized we were closer than we should be!
The rock formations are incredible and the overall view pretty fantastic. We had a great day!
If you are ever in the area, I recommend this as a great day trip!
