I have very small bruise-like purple and red spots over an area of my leg. Not painful, itchy, or raised; what could it be?

Originally I thought i was like a bruise, because the color resembles one.  I was hiking last night with a friend and we walked a good 5 miles.  I have normal looking bruises from the night too, from falling a few times, and getting hit with branches..  but this one just showed up, I woke up with it, and really looks odd to me.  Although its not raised, itchy, painful or anything.  Its flat and under the skin.
