"Watch out for rattlers" Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument Warnings Or Dangers Tip by toonsarah

  Warning sign
by toonsarah

We didn't come across any snakes here but the warning signs are there for a reason. This is rattlesanke country. So watch where you are walking and stay on the paths - certainly you should avoid walking anywhere where you can't see the ground in front of you. It's a good idea to make a noise as you walk too, so you don't take a snake by surprise.

If you should see a snake, give it a wide berth. Everyone says that they won't bother you if you don't bother them, but their idea of bother may not be yours, so don't take any chances.
