Last Saturday while working on the weather station a good size adult rattler crused by a few feet away and went into the bushes just below where we were working. 

Most definetly watch your step and keep a good eye on kids or pets. 

 

Just leave the snakes alone, they wont bite unless you harrass them.  I have regular rattlesnakes come by every year and even hang out at the fountain everyday in the summer.  If I am out walking my dogs and come across one I just go around them and when I come back a few minutes  later they are gone.  Same thing if they are curled up or sunning on the road, they never bother me.  If you see one just go away.  If it is in your front yard, you can use a water hose to spray water on either side to herd it off the direction you want them to go.  The sound of the water hitting the ground seems to make them scared.  If you hit them with the water it is like they realize it is just water and than are a little harder to direct.  Just leave them alone and move away when you hear them rattle, its not like they want to bite you.  Stepping on one might result in a bite I suppose, mainly with the young ones, they get real excited fast, but I have walked over them many times only to be scared, but not bit.  CA has one venomous snake, that is nice enough to warn us when we are too close.  Dont over react and start killing them like my nieghbors.  They are territorial and a big 6ft rattle snake that has been running an area for 10 years keeps out the young agressive ones, and they do get use to people, so they are not freaking out everytime they see you.  Thats my 10 cents.
