Banded Woolly Bear Caterpillars
The first one we ever saw was when we went hiking up near Mount St. Helens. We only saw one there, though. At Nisqually Wildlife Refuge we felt surprised at how many we saw. My children were counting how many we saw. I'll have to ask them to see if they remember how many we reached.
Some we saw on the ground while walking on the wooden boardwalk. We saw one on a leaf along the way. We saw a lot of them on the grass between the two huge twin barns. We tried to be careful and watchful while walking to try and avoid squishing one on accident.
