BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — Sunday evening a trio of mountain bikers had an unexpected run-in with a Western Diamond Back Rattlesnake, in the Heil Valley Ranch Open Space.

Mary Ellen Myers, 28, and her friends she was riding with had just finished a pit stop to take in the view on the Ponderosa Loop Trail.

While walking back to her bike, Myers was bitten by a rattler, who was hidden under some rocks. Friends were able to take a picture of the suspect rattler, while calling 911.
