I have decided to open up a studio/art gallery in the upper section of my property near the road. There is not a lot of drive by traffic, but out in this area there are several artists with small studio spaces that they open up to the public from time to time.
I decided to put the studio right where we already had a BIG pile of rocks! I could not find my camera when we started the project...this is about halfway through. We are moving the rocks around the property so there will be a rock wall around the structure and places to park. There will also be a little rock area for more gardening space for me!
While we were moving the rocks we came across two salamanders! I think they might be torrent salamanders....maybe the cascade variety? I am not sure...We carefully moved them under the rock wall and out of harms way.
We also found a Rana aurora, Red-legged frog although she was moving too fast for a photo. Must have been in a hurry to get somewhere!
