Cottonwood is such a great place to find AZ wildlife! Went camping there some years ago with family and caught a couple cali kingsnakes, crayfish, hellgramites, met some friendly skunks and caught a bunch of fish. Those little whiptail lizards were a bit too quick for me though! There was even a research group from Canada while I was there, out collecting insect specimens. Talking with them helped spur my interest in inverts. Now I wanna go back!
