Anaxyrus fowleri Fowler’s Toad
The genus Anaxyrus was split from Bufo by Frost et al in 2006. This split is particularly controversial among herpetologists, and many references still use the long-established Bufo.

Fowler’s Toad (Anaxyrus fowleri)
This toad was skulking - that's right, skulking! - in the hollow of an old stump, right alongside the trail. I didn't want to disturb its skulking so I just photographed it where it was and moved on.
