Willow or pacific-slope?
Not sure. Dead.
This observation was from a friend.
These were taken at the Ira Springs trailhead (approximately 2100') on 8/13 at approximately 5pm. Other than the spot on his right side he seemed healthy.
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.
The tracks of a swan. I am not completely certain whether is the Trumpeter or Tundra, since both species visit this valley in the winter time.
Large tracks of an elk. The coin in the photo is a nickel.
The herd found here belongs to the introduced Rocky Mountain subspecies.
Green spiked capsule, relatively sharp spines on bract. Pink disk flowers. Growing on side of road at mailbox peak near snoquailme.
Seen while hiking Mt. Si last summer.
