Hibernating Snake heading South to Stubblefield Canyon from Wilmer Lake after crossing Macomb Ridge. Fall, Late September 2009.

High Sierra Snake hibernating in Yosemite backcountry.

This snake was "pulled-in" at both ends. You could not tell the head from the tail. The snake was nestled below a rock making up a step of the trail.
