Hassayampa River Preserve in Wickenburg Arizona

September 16, 2006  •  Leave a Comment

The Hassayampa River Preserve is a very cool area of preserved land near Wickenburg, AZ.  It is run by the Nature Conservancy and is a place that I have been to on numerous occasions.  This one stands out because of the encounter with a very unique rattlesnake which was what I thought to be a Grand Canyon Pink Rattlesnake.  I was hiking with my friend Lisa and we heard this thing from 30 feet away and it was quite angry.  That sound is unmistakable! I was of course trembling, and zoomed in as far as I could, but got off a decent shot of the snake in its classic coiled and ready to strike position.
