Found this snake about to drag off a dead trout stranded by a dried out stream. Came back to same spot 3 days later and found the fish skeleton under a rock overhang in the stream bed.
One of the lowest elevation pikas I'd heard or seen in quite sometime (about 8,000 feet). Likely as a result of global warming, their range has gone up about 1,000 feet + in the last 100 years. As recently as the 80s and 90s I would routinely hear pikas in the lower part of the canyon here.
