Often mistaken as salamanders, these little guys are actually the eastern red-spotted newt. They take on this bright orange color during their juvenile stage as they move onto land traveling from pond to pond. They are actually aquatic in their adult stage where they trade their vibrant appearance for a darker green complexion. Photo courtesy of @theplateletwalker.

As @drewmason shows, it isn’t just the north getting hammered by the elements this week.
Fun weekend with old friends! As soon as we got to Virginia, the worst snow storm of the year rolls in. As soon as we leave, it’s 45 degrees. We made it to the top nonetheless! Legs are now in recovery mode. #appalachiantrail #mcafeeknob #backpacking #blueridgemountains A photo posted by Drew Mason (@drewmason) on

It doesn’t seem like -7 degree weather is enough to keep @ridedivide and Buddy from having a blast on the trail.
