The Treasure Box Mine
DWR Website and noticed that rubber boas are native to Utah. I had wanted to see one since then, but in all the time I've spent outside, I never had. This one was about 18 inches long, and determined to find a quieter spot. I followed it for a few minutes, then let it go on its way in peace. It was definitely a great day- and I hadn't even looked around at the mine yet.
