Was this the last newt of the season? A very dry adult newt.

Coverage: from the parking lot to the second stop sign.

North side - 06/22/21

Tuesday 9:30-11:30 am: no newts.
Weather - cloudy, a bit cold. It rained overnight a little bit up the mountain.
Other roadkills: bees, ants, beetle, centipede.
Coverage: from the parking lot to the second stop sign. I saw 3 deer on the Midpen property.
Traffic: 11 trucks, 30 cars, 3 bikes, 16 pedestrians, and 26 cars parked by the road and in the parking lots (no cars at the far lot). County Roads were trimming trees by array 5, with 5 trucks and pickups and such. I thought there'd be more traffic, as there was an accident on HW 17, towards Santa Cruz, and it was very slow.
