Description

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.

Description

I found this interesting plant of which I have now idea what it is. It has small bead-like white flowers that all hang in a line from on stalk, which had single leaves growing from it. The area is rather steep and this particular plant was growing out of the gap between cement bricks/blocks. It was a wet day and the area and climate in general is always cool and moist. Surrounding it are sedges, vines, and a a multitude of other native plants. The area is mostly forest cover.

Description

There were no berries to be found on this plant, and the leaves seemed bigger than a red huckleberry, but ultimately I decided, it was probably huckleberry given the shape of the leaves and look of the branches. The area is forest with a lot of different ground cover.

A plant that was not blooming and so is difficult to identify. At first I thought it was skunk cabbage, but the leaves did not seem to be quite the same as skunk cabbage. There were a few of these plants and the entire area is mostly forest cover. The larger leaves were about 4 inches wide and a 1 - 1/5 feet tall. Any ideas?

A lot of horsetail found around the Montlake interlaken park. The area is in general hilly, but flat by the sidewalks and streets. It's also very damp in the area, though that could be attributed to the weather that day.

I could use some help identifying this funky fungi. It was growing on teh side of a dead log. It looks rather orange and jelly like, but it wasn't very big and was really the only one on the log. It looks flakey, but it is not. It was found up at Mt. Rainier.
