Salamander Heaven

So much for my resolution to make frequent blog entries. I’ll start now!

This was salamander spring for me. With a lot of coaching and guidance from amphibian biologist P.P. and watershed expert C.E. I nightly braved the frozen night snow way too early this cold spring then missed the magical first warm spring rain for a ski trip but still got to see a few swimming creatures after mating, lots of eggs, and a nice view of a beautiful departing adult spotted salamander (about 6″ long.)
