Notes:
Finally got a voucher! On my third try at this location, was able to photograph a fringe-toed lizard here for the first time. Out of 10 fringe-toeds seen between 9:30am and 10:30am, this was the only one I got a picture of. The others all fled into vegetation and then down under the sand immediately upon sighting. Area is within city limits and is heavily frequented by dirt bikes and other off-road vehicles, which has dramatically reshaped many of the dunes.
