Cheers to my herping brothers and sisters in the field! :D

I just published this video and thought I'd share a link with the FHF! Enjoy!

Thank you Tony! With Washington being the "Evergreen State" its easy for people to think of the cooler, damper, and much greener western Washington side of the cascade mountain range than the dry central/eastern sides of the state. In this video I roll down the eastern slope of the cascade range finding a few sharp-tailed snakes at 4000' and then down through the shrub-steppe to the columbia river at 600' elevation. Its a 2-3 hour drive from Seattle to these locations and I made 7-8 round trips over the cascade mountain range to shoot this video. Washington reptile diversity isn't as frenzied compared to southern states but I figure there may be a few international or east coast herpers that are curious about rubber boas, alligator lizards, and the rainbows of garter snakes we have out here.

Trying to edit a few more videos before I blast off to Utah and Oregon this weekend. More videos on the way!

Dude, that was awesome. Love the gopher snake footage, love it all. I have only been to Washington one time. I absolutely loved it there, one of the best weeks of my life. We were at Mt. Baker for a week. We hit the Cascades, Olympic (rainforest, ocean & mountain top), waterfalls, and many other spots. I have been to 48 states, Washington was my favorite, Oregon second! Cant wait to go back.

Thanks Derek! Just checked out one of your online photo galleries -- you are a great photographer! Your landscapes, animals, and city structures all look great. If you ever get out to WA again and are seeking some grand landscapes to photograph let me know and I'll add a few scenic views to your list. I'm always looking to pair up with photographers for video collaborations... though some of your photos look good enough they might cost me a few limbs! :)

Hope to have another WA herping video out in the next week from the Kittitas Environmental Education Network's (KEEN) "Get Intimate with the Shrub-Steppe" public event from May 12th in the Yakima River Canyon. Professor Dr Daniel D Beck from CWU tubed a wild rattlesnake we found during a snake hike so everyone could touch/feel/get close to a well secured buzztail. The minds of the children present were all blown. https://www.ycic.org/get-intimate-with-the-shrub-steppe
