    Wolf Spider (?) I do not know what he is, and my tendency is to call anything brown and stripey a wolf spider.

    Really great pics! I thought for sure you'd have a huntsman or two in there!

    We have huntsman spiders around too - I have not been lucky enough to see a wild one when a camera is handy - we do have one at work, but it is so... edgy... I can't really open the cage to get a GOOD shot of it without risk of letting it out.

    Went hiking again today - found a few more inverts: enjoy!

    This one may be a huntsman... not sure. I am not an expert at inverts.

    Two striped walking-stick (Anisomorpha buprestoides)

    These guys are common enough, though they can shoot an eye irritant very accurately into your eyes to a distance of 40cm. The pain has been reported to be somewhat like molten lead in the eye.
