Castle at Hovenweep
Collard Lizard
Caught a collard
Fence lizard
Finally got out backpacking again.  We visited Hovenweep in southeastern Utah.  It wasn't really a herping trip, but I did get to see some awesome herps.  The ruins were amazing!
Hovenweep castle.  This is a magnificent structure.
This is the nicest collard lizard I have seen in the wild.  He let me get real close for pictures.
I easily caught this guy just to see if I could.  He wasn't too happy.  Watch those teeth!
Fence lizards were plentiful.  This one caught a mouthfull.

Spiny lizard

A gopher snake was one of two snakes we saw.  The other was a whipsnake which was too fast for me.
Sideblotched lizards are beautiful
Here is another view of this nice male sideblotch
Spiny lizards are tough suckers
