Pierre has passed but I can't with this rattle snake near the path! Funny montage made to remember a terrific story! In fact on a previous trip many years ago in the same place, I had a more closer encounter with this deadly snake! There was no cemented path and no toilet as it was not yet part of the new National Park Grand Staircase Escalante NP created by President Bill Clinton; I needed to make pipi and I did that on a rowling bush current in the desert; Behind was a Vvery big rattle snake which slowly escaped from there; I was totally frightened by this animal about 2 meters long and a bite should have been deadly for the two as Pierre does not drive and as quite nobody passed there in the very high temperatures of the desert!!! We were alone in the place going from Tropic to Page with our beautiful rental car, a new white Buick that became completely red with the sand of the unpaved road!
