Wayne saw this Gila Monster on the Phone Line trail, before the turn-off to Blackett's.

We saw this beauty on Ned's Nature Walk. Compare Bob's photo to Wayne's and you'll see that these are two distinct Gila Monsters. Their patterns are unique, like human fingerprints.

After the Gila Monster crossed the road, s/he stayed around to be photographed by Marty.

In this zoomed-in view by Marty, you can also see some plants : -) Specifically, the developing fruits of a Borage family plant (in the lower left) called Arch-nutted Comb Bur (Pectocarya recurvata). This plant has white flowers that are even tinier then the white flowers of the Cryptantha species; and, of course, the hairy foliage characteristic of this family.
The second one is great -- such perfectly straight posture!ReplyDelete
