Yep. They do look like very dark versions of our Southern Pacific Rattlesnakes.
Here’s something I just sent to Marianne Jensen’s site, which led me to you:
Again on Four Peaks, I was traipsing around in the dark with a flashlight, and came within 10 or 20 feet of a black (not black-tailed, but black) rattlesnake. It gave the usual warning, and I decided to go back to camp about 100 feet away. That snake was still rattling, and loudly, when I went to sleep over an hour later. Cranky fellow. All was quiet at dawn, though.
