Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 38 (Sierra Fence Lizard)

Fence Lizard along Taft Point TrailNorthern California Fence Lizard

If I had to take a guess, I would suggest that this is a picture of a Sierra Fence Lizard. The photo was captured along the Taft Point Trail at Yosemite National Park. We saw several scampering about in the sunny, damp woodlands.

Having hiked extensively in the southwest, this lizard is just one of many that I have come across and photographed. They are a very diverse, colorful and interesting group of reptiles.
