On a recent trip to Idaho, I got to spend an afternoon in the Great Basin National Park area of Eastern Nevada. I struck out on my target snakes, but still really enjoyed myself in the remote upland areas of the wilderness there.

What kind of snakes were you looking for there? Beautiful pics, BTW.
Thanks! I was looking for pretty much anything that was around, but my main target was the Great Basin Rattlesnake in the lower elevations, and near the top, hoping to see a rubber boa or two. The weather didn’t agree with me the entire trip, amazingly. I spent a total of 9 days skipping from spot to spot between Phoenix and Northern Idaho, and got poured on 8 of 9 evenings of the trip. I did manage to find a few targets, finding an entire den of Great Basin rattlesnakes in South West Idaho, a grand canyon rattlesnake (I hadn’t seen one of them before), and a handful of other interesting critters. Those photos should start making it into the mix in coming weeks.
