Horsetooth Reservoir goers...watch your step! Again late yesterday I had a very close encounter with a full grown rattlesnake while walking the shoreline. This snake surprised me even though I was on the look-out for them. That's three rattlers in the last 10 days, all while walking around popular areas for shoreline recreation. Afternoons and early evening seems to be the most active time for them. Between the 2020 and 2021 summer seasons thus far, I've seen more than 20 of them here and my dog has been bit twice in the last 22 months! 😳
