    Wink Trip to Goat Marsh near Mt. St. Helens (Pics)

    Yesterday four of us piled in a car and headed out of Portland up to Mount St. Helens to go see wild carnivores. We spotted Drosera rotundifolia and also Utricularia that we haven't figured out yet which species it is. The Drosera was growing on Sphagnum moss, we think Sphagnum squarrosum.

    Coral mushroom (Ramaria sp.)




    Damselfly


    Huckleberries (Vaccinium sp.)





    Drosera rotundifolia


















    Yellow pond lily (Nuphar polysepala)




    Utricularia sp.






    Rough Skinned Newt (Taricha granulosa)




    Some landscape shots including several with Mt. St. Helens in the back


















    Frogs




    Pterospora andromedea


    Monotropa hypopitys


    Fireweed (Chamerion angustifolium)


    Vanilla leaf (Achlys triphylla)


    Corn lily (Veratrum californicum)


    Corn lily flower stalk


    Some kinda polypore mushrooms


    Bunchberry (Cornus canadensis)


    Twinflower (Linnaea borealis)


    Unknown plant from the bog


    Tiarella trifoliata?


    Pearly everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea)

    Very nice pictures. I'll have to check out Goat Marsh next time I'm up that way. How did you first find out about that place?

    It's quite a nice area. Not nearly as many sundews as I was hoping for but it was still nice to see them growing in the wild. I'm glad I thought to check the lake for Utrics since we weren't originally intending to.

    Awesome stuff, mount St. Helen's is amazing!
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    Thanx for posting the photos! I am sorry I could not make it this time, hopefully the next trip. Amazing scenery and looks like you had decent weather. Awesome you found aquatic utrics there.

    Something interesting you guys may not have noticed - the Utricularia are already forming turions in the middle of July. I thought that was rather strange. After talking to a few people and digging through pictures I'm pretty sure it's Utricularia minor, though I'm trying to get ahold of someone at the forest service who may know for sure.
