A Little Cruising

Devin and I caught this little rubber boa while cruising the canyon roads of northern Utah. 
A couple minutes later on a different road, we saw this Great Basin rattlesnake getting crazy with strikes and rattling loudly.
Devin moved back to California after that, but my friend Keegan and I cruised up this bloke in the Alpine Loop.
We heard some rustling while photographing the rubber boa. A quick investigation on the source of the sounds revealed two big porcupines. One wattled into the bushes, but the other stuck around, so I manipulated it out in the open for quick snapshot.
We used Keegan's basketball shorts to get some quills.
While I was fooling around with porcupines, Devin was over in California doing some road cruising of his own. 
A pretty little night snake.
Devin also cruised a Speckled Rattlesnake.
Road cruising together would have to wait a bit longer until I could find some time to fly to California.
