Unicoi Co., Tennessee. April 24, 2006.
“Back on the road and up, up, up I went, then the road leveled off near the mountain tops. I pulled over where a branch of the Appalachian Trail crossed the road, and getting out I spotted several small pieces of plywood under a stand of hemlock. Under the first piece was something small, glittery and new – I slapped down and managed to close my hand around it. I carried it back to the road and opened my hand – Plethodon welleri, Weller’s Salamander!”
