Watch Your Step, More Rattlesnakes Are Emerging From Their Dens Around Idaho

This time of year is typically when we start lacing up our hiking boots and hitting the trail, but we’re not the only ones who will be out there enjoying the warm weather. It’s rattlesnake season here in the Gem State and that means you’ll want to be on the lookout during your upcoming adventures. As much as we love having access to our state’s beautiful natural landscapes, sometimes it means finding ourselves a little too close to nature for comfort. Here’s all you need to know about avoiding these slithery creatures and what to do if you do come across one.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
