I found this Pstuedotsuga menzesii (Doug Fir) cone just off the trail on the 2870 056 spur.
While walking along the closed 056 spur of the 2870 Forest Service road I noticed this patch peeking out of a high tuft of moss.
While walking the 056 spur to Cranberry Bog, I noticed a branch off the path covered with these unusual looking fruiting bodies.
This deer is distinguishable by its black tail, the tail is broad and the backside of the tail is covered with a dark brown color that gets black near the tip. An average adult black-tailed deer buck weighs about 140 to 200 pounds and adult doe weighs about 90 to 130 pounds.
