Two reptilian stories...

Heading out to the White Rim Trail trailing the rest of the group, I looked down to find a lizard (I think it's called an alligator lizard) hitching a ride on my instrument panel on the 350. Grabbed him so he wouldn't fall off and get hurt, pulled over and let him off.

A few years back, Hell and I were in the Laramie Peak unit of the Medicine Bow NF about to head up a fire road to the Black Mountain lookout. There was a group of ATV'ers looking pretty excited about something at the start of the road. Jeff wanted to get going so he wasn't eating dust and headed right up. I watched as a good sized rattler reached out and touched his lower leg. Jeff never felt a thing. I'm betting that poor rattler broke tooth on that hit.
