First time I can recall seeing this strange gall.
Early start or late stop? 7-8ft tall shrub
Ivan found this amazing Northwestern Salamander under a log while we were trying (and failing) to find adult Giant Salamanders. Another new-to-me herp.
Found under log in mixed conifer forest.
Growing on conifer.
Large, red bolete growing under conifers (Bishop pine, Doug fir, maybe some hemlock around). Very slow and mild staining reaction.
Tammy found this one, and I found another in the same stream. As Ivan pointed out, looks a lot like E. e. picta.
New herp for me! This one seems to be a metamorph, so I guess I still have to see an adult with its weird head and vents. Many thanks to those two researchers we met who gave us tips on finding this species.
Found this massive carabid under a log at Van Damme.
One of many weird introduced carnivorous plants at this bog.
Never seen this stuff before. Weird.
