Snake in Median.

400 ft. Rattlesnake in the Median

This huge rock sculpture of a diamondback rattlesnake is just 0.2 mi off I-25. It snakes along the median of University Blvd for about 400 feet. You can take the freeway exit, drive along the snake, make a U turn, and return to the freeway in just a few minutes. Well worth the diversion.
