    Xtratuff, you're spot on! That's why I wipe my bum with only red LFS.

    Glad you enjoyed it RL7836! And I couldn't agree more whole-heartedly with you.

    And Taliesin, after reviewing the field guide I think you're probably correct about the fern being Blechnum spicant. You obviously know your stuff I was going to say sword fern.

    Well there is no lack of great ferns in this neck of the woods maybe I'll do a fern pic thread someday just for you.

    Of course, I've gone on many more hikes so I'll just keep posting pictures of the area in this thread.

    I saw this tree on the side of the road and couldn't help but stop and get up close to it, and see what the woods behind it are like. This is THE largest yellow cedar I've seen.

    So gnarly, so majestic.

    It's very big around (for a yellow cedar)


    False Lily of the Valley

    Interesting ground plants

    Bear-bread

    Just some forest

    Evidence of bark being stripped by natural causes as well as by natives for cedar bark weaving

    An unimpressive mushroom

    Just a tree

    This is as colorful as fall gets here. The berry bushes turning color.

    Interesting fungus.

    A cute little fern

    Some sphagnum bog - home to hundreds of dormant D. rotundifolia

    Bog cranberries in their prime. SO good.

    More evidence of bark being stripped on yellow cedars for cedar weaving.

    Fungus? lichen, I think?

    I have a thing for cute little brooks, this one is no exception

    An impressive roadside lichen formation

    Then just on a single bolder in front of my school, there are multiple kinds of fungus or lichen or whatever these are.




    And a very popular recreational lake.

    A very big Sitka Spruce.

    They are all around

    Bear tracks

    Tried sneaking up on this Blue Heron

    But it got away!

    Canopy Carnage from the 100mph+ winds earlier that week

    Where salmon go to die.

    Large trees all around

    A good creek to go trout fishing

    And for those of us without waders, a perfect vantage point

    And a delicious Dolly Varden trout

    And this was just feet down my driveway. No electricity at my house and I certainly didn't make it to class that day!


    Hope you enjoy the pictures.

    Just a few more pics I took recently.

    More crazy lichen or fungus, or whatever this is!


    A beautiful sphagnum bog


    With a fast flowing creek, which was bordered by still edible and just ripe high-bush cranberries.


    The view from up here is amazing.

    If you can ignore the shotgun shells
