Description

"I was hiking north of Covina, CA up by Big Dalton Canyon on the Mystic Canyon Trail, and came across this newt just before dark. It was close to 5:30pm and we were heading back to the car when it just happened to cross the path in front of us. The location has a creek, but this year the water level has been lower than usual. We left him where we found him, near some tall grass and a fallen tree stump along the creek."
