I did accomplish lots of other things this weekend – spent lots of time with my family, I finally bought and mounted a rack on my bicycle – but this evening (around 7:30pm on Sunday July 22nd) rolled around with me still feeling incomplete. I needed to go herping.
So, I headed up
The truck drove away after a few minutes, and I reoccupied the cul de sac. I checked all the usual chunks and boards around the sidewalk, and I turned up this guy. I think it’s a ‘he,’ but it might have simply been a non-gravid female.
I was tempted to head deeper into the weeds for a more-thorough search, but I saw a white Cadillac make it to the intersection a block away, pause a moment, and then pull a U-turn and drive away. I felt a little uneasy getting to far away from the car on my own, so I decided to call it a day (after 25 minutes) and head home.
The temperature was in the high 70s, the air was dry, and the sky was sunny.
