The gecko was shot in September 2005.  We were hiking back from the falls toward Pine canyon #4 campsite.  We were turning over stones looking for creatures hiding underneath.  Found several centipedes and then got lucky and found this guy.  We found another one about five minutes later under another stone.  
BTW, in this area around Pine Canyon trail we noticed some pipe and several large (about 200 gallon) water tanks off in the scrub about 50 yards from the trail.  It looked like several small pipe wells had been driven into the ground fairly recently.  Anyone know what that is?   As you hike toward the falls from PineCanyon#4 it is on the right about 1/2 mile in.

The other picture was shot in October 2003.

Here's the adult Texas banded gecko

The first gecko is a juvenile.  This is the adult of the same species.
This shot was also taken in September 2005.  About halfway between Ross Maxwell Dr. and the chimneys at about 1 AM.  This was right after Terry nearly stepped right on top of a western diamonback that was coiled up on the trail.  He had his eyes focused on the trail after that and spotted this little guy.
