This plant had lots of vines coming out of the ends of its stems. It also had these small purple flower where the stem branched off in two directions
Also, I'm not sure if it was this plant exactly but when I bent down to look closer something nearby had a very flowery scent.

This was the only big-leaf maple I saw in this area. It had a very small trunk so it was probably a fairly young tree.

Description

Huge dandelion leaves but no sign of the flower. This plant was also only seen in one area at this particular location which leads me to think that it probably got there from a random dandelion seed that flew into this area.

This plant made up much of the ground cover at this location. It had short but very sharp spikes on its stems and the leaf was slightly prickly underneath. The plant had white flowers but I didn't see any fruit.

Description

This tree was everywhere at this location. They were maybe 50-60 feet tall with bright green leaves and trunks that were maybe 1 foot wide. At first I thought they were red alders but I couldn't see any cones. There were a lot of different mosses and lichens on the trunks. And I'm pretty sure the spotted towhees were nesting in these trees.
These trees had a lot of small branches with leaves growing out of the sides of the trunks. (This one had a wierd purple/pink thing growing on it.)

There were a bunch of these spotted towhees in this location. I saw maybe 10 while I was here. They were white-breasted with orange on the side and long rectangle shaped black tails. Their calls slowed down after a while; I think they might have been leaving.
