Red-spotted Newt
A red-spotted newt on the Art Loeb Trail, near Sorrell Creek, on the way to the top of Cold Mountain. I remember seeing lots of these guys when I lived in Pennsylvania and always thought they were quite beautiful. I believe they are only this orange in the springtime when they are still young. It is quite a cute little guy.

Of a time when I discovered "Rough-skinned
Newts" taking advantage of the humidity and
moisture of Swan Creek Canyon, near my native
city near Tacoma, WA.

Do they ever break the mold of being cute???

Thanks lcarreau!

These guys bring back memories for me of walking around the forests of northern PA where I grew up. I am glad the little guy stirred up some memories.

Thanks! They are very neat little guys. I was actually pretty amazed that my camera captured it so well.
