I had a meeting out in Atlanta last week so I thought I'd make the best of it and fly in a little early for a short herp outing. It was raining pretty good when I arrived, so I hopped in the rental and shot up north to Pigeon Mountain for a walk. I was hoping to get a pic of Plethodon petraeus and Aneides aeneus, though I wasn't holding my breath. By the time I got to the mountain (a big hill by my standards) they had received quite a soaking with more in the area. It was overcast, humid and cool. I wasn't out of the car five minutes and I spotted a salamander in the crack of a large bolder. I shined it with a flashlight and danged if it wasn't the Pigeon Mountain salamander, right off the bat! Then I saw another, and another, and then almost stepped on one. Hell, they were out moving around in the open at 2:00 in the afternoon. Within three hours I saw more than 200. When it rains it pours.
