After a drive from Denver, we start our hike at the Pollock trail head.  It's a seven mile hike into Rattlesnake Canyon.  Our first camp is at Mile Four.  As the sun set, we notice a series of spider webs along the wall, each occupied by a black widow spider.   We make an extra check of our sleeping bags before crawling in for the night.

 Rattlesnake Canyon has the largest collection of arches outside Arches National Park in Utah.  This one soars nearly 100 ft from its base along a north facing ridge of the canyon
