Hi Kyle, I hiked to Tenaja falls yesterday but it's dry as a bone and the critters were all hiding well. I'll try again in the wet season. I love the area! Thanks again for the suggestion.

Yep no problem! Tenaja falls would be your best bet probably. I've been up there twice and both times I've seen them. At the very bottom of the falls in the little pool and at the top. You just have to find a way to get down there. And watch out for poison oak or ivy or whatever it is haha good luck!

Awesome! I'll have to wander up there soon and go exploring. Thank you!

Thank you everyone. And Cindy I found it near a wooded creek area. It's actually not too far from you.

Great spotting!

Nice spotting, Kyle! I've been looking for these beauties for over a year. What was the habitat?
