Wildlife and Other Sightings: Coyote...Ravens...and Sierra Dome Spiders
July 15, 2012
At 8:30am a coyote passed near the Hodgdon Meadow Campground and upset two ground squirrels which began making loud alarm calls. This is probably the same coyote that has been making regular appearances at the Big Oak Flat Information Station and the Campground. However, it does not seem to be used to people and did not appear to be looking for human food.

Sierra Dome Spiders are making their unique homes around the Hodgdon Meadow Campground. The messy webs have an elegant central dome structure and could remind you of the many dome-style tents in the campground. The spider, which has a white abdomen with a black pattern, hangs upside down from the center of the dome waiting to pull prey through the web.
