Wow what a year 2017 was! Grab a drink it's going to be a long one!
I had several goals in 2017, some I reached some I feel a bit short. I finished off all California Salamanders outside the genus Batrachoseps. I also working on finding animals in range gaps, and range extensions which brings me to 2018 goals. I'm starting from scratch, not herping any spot I've been too, working on the lifers I have left, and herping range edges, and range gaps.
I started 2017 off with a trip down to Southern California in January.

Limestone Salamander (Hydromantes brunus) juvenile. I love the golden/greenish flecking on the juveniles, I'm not a big "favorites" however, Hydromantes are on my admired list.

I just noticed the Flickr link provides the species, to I'll avoid writing it twice! I also may skip some of the narrative as I've had this post nearly completed only to have it all lost. I'm not sure I can muster up spending hours on doing it again!

Epic year man! And I guess this is only half. Jealous of the life you get to live out there!

You put some serious time in and covered the whole state, it seems.

Wow. I hope you have a vehicle with good fuel economy! Ha ha.

This is a nice antidote to the Cali-bashers of the world. It's a helluva place.

I like what you found on the east side, northern and middle latitudes.

cheers

Jimi,

Agreed. I love exploring CA. I grew up there and visit family 1-2 times per year and always get out in the field while there. Despite this, there are still herps I haven't found and many places I haven't explored. The variation in topography, climate, and geology makes it an incredible place. Can't wait to get back.

FH
