Colorado National Monument, Colorado

We saw several of these lizards as we visited the canyon overlooks. In several cases, they actually seemed to be studying us as we looked at them. One small one crawled from a rock about 10 feet away and passed within inches of my shoe before disappearing over the edge of the canyon.

These two scurried under a rock as we approached and then came out to survey the scene moments later.
