The wolf spider below is, I believe, a part of the genus Hogna. I have a difficult time narrowing down wolf spiders. However, the tank-like build of Hogna fits this example pretty well. It looks big, but in reality, it is only about an inch long. I guess that might be big to some folks.
The other species I found was the rabid wolf spider, genus rabidosa. I already posted a photo of this spider the other night, but this one had some nice little surprises along with it.....

It's been really nice getting out this week. I hope I can keep up with the frequency of hiking that I have. One more day off!
