Tillman's Ravine, Stokes State Forest

October 9th, 2010: Blake and Dimitria Mathys

Dimi and I visited Sussex County in an attempt to find Mountain Dusky Salamander and enjoy the beautiful hills and forest. We had an enjoyable time, but no sign of Mountain Dusky. We did see many Northern Dusky, Two-lined, Slimy, and Red-backed Salamanders, as well as a very nice Spring Salamander. Alas, this was the last attempt for Mountain Dusky Salamander, and so my salamander big year will miss this species.
