Going by http://www.californiaherps.com/lizards/pages/s.o.longipes.html, the larger, pointed scales on the back and the yellow foreleg 'armpit' point to Western Fence Lizard. (Great Basin is the currently recognized subspecies there, but see Taxonomic Notes on that page.)

Thanks for the information. I don't have experience iding reptiles so I didn't really know the things to look for.
