This observation was from a friend.

Found these tracks in freshly fallen snow over a talus field. I've previously seen pika about 200 feet higher on the mountain near the top of the talus field.

Did not see the pika, but heard lots of calling including alarms as we climbed. Hoping to get back for a more in-depth search before the snows come.

Sometimes a bear will eat this, in the spring; but when you see it clipped, it's usually due to pickers, who are selling it - according to Daniel Mathews in his excellent book "Cascade-Olympic Natural History"

There was a lot of beargrass (Xerophyllum tenax) along this section of the trail, not much in bloom. It was very nice to walk in this noice, cool section of the trail on what was proving to be a fairly hot (by Seattle standards - 28 C or 82 F) day
