Notes:
First herp of 2018. I flipped another one under this rock but it got away. Temperatures since the New Year had been consistently below freezing, leading to a deep freeze of all waterways. The water in this ditch was surprisingly liquid, likely due to it being meltwater from snow upstream. As a result, I was able to flip the rocks there and observe a few salamanders despite most over pieces of cover being frozen to the ground.
