Mara Hill can be found to the north from Traquille Road on the west of Kamloops. The Mara trail in Lac du Bois Provincial Park starts near this point and offers many interesting geologic formations including hoodos. I had little time to photograph this area, still intending on going home via the Fraser Canyon at the time, so I moved on. While walking up to the railway tracks to take a few pictures I noticed a snake coiled on a rock. Didn’t think too much of it at the time, its just a snake right? Apparently, and I don’t know why my sleep deprived mind didn’t realize this at the time… rattlesnakes are common in the area. I do wish I had a picture of it though.
