Notes

Horrible weather for finding horned lizards, extremely cloudy and cold. It is suspected this lizard emerged to bask in the early morning when the sun was sporadically breaking through the clouds and the lizard fell asleep on the rocks as conditions cooled. By noon, the sun was gone and temperatures never reached greater than 63 degrees.
