Notes:
This find is significant for several reasons:

1) It was found at a new location along the fire road where we have never found HLs before.

2) It's the highest elevation HL we have found along that fire road to date, and by some margin.

3) It is one of only very few juveniles we have found along that fire road.

4) It was found the day after the road was graded by bulldozers, as happens every year around this time (see habitat shot). No doubt, other HLs were not so lucky and got squished or buried in the process.
