Ladybugs Near the Summit

There were a number of places high on Ingalls Peak where there were ladybugs crawling all over the place (like insects). Apparently they spend the winter all clustered up in the rocks high in the mountains. It seems strange that they could survive, but I was told that's exactly what they do.

Location: Ingalls Peak, Washington
