There are other populations in the Inyo Mountains—nineteen known ones, perhaps a few others waiting to be discovered—but each must mostly drift down its own current of time. And as I shoulder my pack and hike down the jumbled canyon to the nearest road I wonder, too, how the Inyo Mountains slender salamander, which is as silent and phlegmatic as any vertebrate I have ever seen, has worked its way so deeply into my heart. The story of the Inyo Mountains slender salamander has been crafted out of time, ecology, the genetic legacy of the salamander’s ancestors, and the changing landscape of western North America.
My son and I stop for a drink, our pallid eastern faces flushed and sweaty, winter bodies not yet acclimated to the assault of the desert sun. The canyon narrows. Martin and I walk beneath steep shoulders of angular rock dotted with a scatter of small shrubs as we follow the dry wash deeper into the mountains. Harsh light bounces off the slopes and July’s furnace whispers in the air. I tug the bill of my hat further down on my forehead and look up canyon; even with sunglasses on, I need to squint against the sun’s intensity.
It would take half a day and thousands of feet of elevation gain and loss to reach the spring. There is no easy route, and as temperatures climb into the nineties I decide to rest. I find some shade and pull a granola bar out of my pack, down some water, and think of fish and salamanders, of deep time and the isolation that holds the canyon and its inhabitants. There is the desert, but there also are the limitations of the salamanders themselves, which in the Inyo Mountains have forced them into what looks like an evolutionary dead end every bit as absolute as the waterless alcove at the head of the canyon where I sit.
