Off the Trail: Pumpkin spider 

By Trevor Edmondson

Every fall season for the past few years, I can find my favorite spider clinging to the roof just outside my kitchen window.

Fall is the perfect time for this spider to come out as its orange color fits into any seasonal decoration arrangement.

The Latin name for this spider is Araneus marmoreus, but most naturalists and articles call it the marbled orbweaver.

According to INaturalist, the range for this spider is vast, as it can be found in most of North America but tends to be more abundant east of the Mississippi.
