the dragon of mount diablo

This beautiful snake-like lizard was sunning itself right on a trail at Mount Diablo, we saw it despite having our eyes on the sky following a pair of golden eagles. A few months ago I found one of these in my house behind my kitchen garbage can.

I prefer seeing them on a trail.

    I expected a dragon like the one off of the shore at Fisk Mill in the Salt Point state park area. It is worth the trip!
