9 dead newts (0 juveniles), no live newts.
1 dead fence lizard

Weather: Warm, high 70s, clear, has been dry for too long.

Traffic: 47 moving vehicles, 20 parked, 1 quarry truck, 5 bicycles, 2 pedestrians

All newts were very dry, and a majority not adhered to the road. I wonder what happens if it doesn't rain again, how will they decide to return to their summer homes? Could they end up staying in/around the reservoir?

It's a lovely time to walk around there, the buckbrush is in full bloom, swaths of hillside are covered around Priest Rock and St. Joe's, I can even smell it on the road when the wind is right. And the maples are budding out and loaded with catkins.
