Looks like Crotalus oreganus oreganus, the Northern Pacific Rattlesnake, to me.

In further answer to you question on how to ID a C.atrox, atrox are known to have a black and white stripe pattern on the tail. They have a facial eye strip like what you see with the Northern Pacific, but they also have a more speckled appearance around the stripe as opposed to the crisp, distinct pattern visible on this animal.

Still, that is a very nice looking crotalid.

I'm quite certain. The tail markings are a very crisp and distinct black and white strip pattern, which isn't present with the photos you gave.

No problem, it is a gorgeous snake no matter what it is.
