Tucson has the Biggest Rattlesnake in the world ~

We are having some overcast, cloudy, rainy weather right now. The local paper just printed a warning that "snake season" is starting (snakes emerge when the weather warms up a bit) so it seems fitting to post some photos of Tucson's most famous snake ~ the Rattlesnake Bridge.

This pedestrian and bike bridge is a fun, giant piece of art/sculpture that stretches over 6 lanes of traffic on lower Broadway. The snake's head (with fangs!) is on the north side and its tail (that rattles!) is on the south side of Broadway. The metal pattern is of a Diamondback Rattler.
