Went hiking today at one of my favorite places. I didnt do much searching for amphibians due to time restraints and we wanted to hike up through the stream. Lots of high rock walls and treturous terrain:D Here are a couple photos of the only two amphibians I spotted and terrain. Sorry for the terrible pics!!:eek:

OK, I guess the salamander is a Mountain Dusky Salamander, Desmognathus ochrophaeus. They are not known in the county I was hiking in so IDing it threw me off:eek:
