While walking across the grass we were surprised by this rattlesnake:

It is a black tail rattlesnake, about as mellow as rattlesnakes can get. 

The rattlesnake just went on its way.  We later told a ranger and they went to catch it since some school groups were coming.  They were going to relocate it away from the visitors center area.
