Found along a trail about 15' above the lake edge in chaparral. SCAT: Suspect from either raccoon or fox but too degraded for definitive id. Only Crayfish in this area that I am aware of are Signal Crayfish and Red Swamp Crayfish

Just happened to notice this plant on the edge of the Ponderosa Pines lining the golf course. I was not playing, just observing.
Nesting pair above one of the tees on the golf course. Very vocal. Total of five seen on this trip into Oregon plus one Golden Eagle in the Klamath Basin
scat from elk feeding on the edges of the Crosswater Golf Course. Later this spring they will migrate up into the mountains. Lots of tuffs of hair on the ground as they molt their winter hair.
noting the color variation in this plant
an old specimen still without its leaves but with many acorn-holes
The striking colors caught my eye.
First plant of this species to be seen at JR. Thought it was broom blooming and went over to pull the plant before seedset. Obviously not broom that I knew. The individual plant may have been pulled by now since the Herbarium Crew viewed the plant also. Very invasive.
Plentiful in Fireroad F
Fantastic fruit load this season
