This was hard to identify given the complexity of the area, but I believe it is gray sedge. It has alternate stalks with clusters of seeds at the top. I also thought it could be a grass, of some sort, but they were rather thick stalks and it grew tall. surrounding it was various other vegetation and the area is hilly with a lot of forest cover.
