That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Copperas Creek Trip Report
« on: March 13, 2017, 01:58:42 PM »

Visited Copperas Creek over the weekend (3/10/17) to find Hopewell and pay respects to the waterfall, given some recent rain fall. I had the GPS coordinates for Hopewell and a printed topo, but still took a moment to locate. Those hidden treasures prefer to remain as such. I took the old logging road just down from Hopewell, bearing North to the large campsite. Lots of deer tracks on that path, it's virtually an animal highway up there. Enjoyed beautiful, sunny hiking weather and only saw a few people. I did not visit Snow, Double Deer, Sandy or Double Copperas Arches, but will save those for next time. :)

The blue water looks like glacier runoff.
