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.

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

Corallorhiza sp. - Talapus Lake, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest

Orchidaceae family

These are mycotrophic plants that obtain their organic carbon from a host green plant by tapping into an intermediary mycorrhizal fungus attached to the roots of the host plant.

Myco-heterotrophy is a symbiotic relationship between certain kinds of plants and fungi, in which the plant gets all or part of its food from parasitism upon fungi rather than from photosynthesis.
