Notes

Entering this record as I notice there are no current records for vagrans in Elko County. I apologize for the horrible voucher photo, I did not have my camera on me so all I have is this photo taken by my friend who had his point and shoot. This snake was seen along with several others in the area around this small alpine lake in the Jarbidge Wilderness. This was at a very high elevation in mid day and due to the abundant vegetation in the area, this was the only one I was lucky enough to grab for a quick look and photo.
