Yes it is.  Apparently the formal name is "Rattlesnake Road".  Back in the day you could drive that road then somebody found a rare plant or something growing in the road and they shut it down.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

My research is teaching me they are in the process of regulating them more.

Enforcing those new regulations will be the issue. I feel like there may be some self enforcement going on at some point.

When I was a kid I loaded up that hay barn with hay, more times than I want to count.....  My grandfather grew alfalfa in all of those fields on a lease from the game dept.  I think I still have pieces of the seat of that old F-250 lodged somewhere from my grandfather coming down that road in a blizzard.  My great uncle lived in the house up there.  Killed more rattlesnakes in a summer up there than I could even count, mason jars full of rattles that I wish I still had.

The country up there has changed a lot, we hardly saw a soul up there back then, nothing like the pumpkin patch it is now - especially with the puffy jacket and skinny jean crowd running around up there now.
