After the park we continued on the roads and found our first gecko of the season on a road, 3rd of the night. This one actually ran towards me and jumped on my foot. We did find a 4th gecko DOR but did not take any pics. Temp was in mid to upper 70's still.

First herp of night was this gecko which I believe is the same one I flipped a few days ago, this time it was out open so got a few pics. Also saw one more in a sprinkler housing but did not get any pics.

It's getting to be that time of year again so I headed to desert to see if any early herps moving. Started with a drive on back roads around ocotillo but only saw utas sunning. Temp was mid 70's. Then made my usual stop at the community park and flipped the cutest gecko under a garbage can and took plenty of pics.
