Aspidoscelis hyperythra beldingi
Orange, yellow, brown and blue lizard. There are several vertical lines running from head to the tip of the tail.
It ran very quickly across a dirt trail at Blue Sky Ecological Reserve. Sorry for the bad photos. My camera was in some weird mode that wouldn't allow me to adjust the focus :(
