I was out hiking, and was walking along the side of a road, and saw this little guy on some gravel. Hes a light blue/grey color, hairy, spotted with red,and looks like he has horns and a tail. I've been trying to search for what species it is. If anyone knows, please share!

Looks similar to a Rusty Tussock Moth (Orgyia antiqua) caterpillar, but you might want to check the bugguide page for the species, or submit your photo there for a second opinion.
