El Paso Hiker posted videos of hike hours before death

EL PASO, Texas- Hours before his tragic death in the Franklin Mountains, Jerred Woods posted Facebook videos to his personal page of the hike.

In his first video at around 9 a.m. on the 7th of May, Woods says, "Just going for a hike this morning. Just wanted to say hi to my friends and family and you know I love you."

All throughout the five videos he posted, he speaks to the beauty of the Borderland area.

Tragically during one moment, Woods recorded he tells those watching, "Today am I going to die or not? Probably not." Though he was referring to the high population of rattlesnakes in the mountains.

Woods body was found on Monday, May 9.
