Snakes in Dry Canyon

It rained most of the day but the sun came out in the afternoon and heated up the rocks. I was hoping to find a rubber boa, but found Mormon racers instead.

This racer was not happy about being disturbed. It flattened its head:
This is racer language for "free body piercing"This racer blew itself up like a balloon to try to look bigger:
Calm down girl!
This racer struck at me repeatedly, but I couldn't time the picture to catch its mouth open.
This canyon is pretty and easily accessible.
