Immature Bald Eagle near Joyce, Washington

We watched this bird for a minute or so. It was a wet, rainy day. I liked when it flicked its head to clear some of the rain off. Jim and I were in a similar condition just a few minutes before as we had been tramping around in the the rainy forest.

Description

This plant clinging to the sunny and rocky hillside is Sedum spathulifolium, or Broad-leaved Stonecrop. We saw hundreds of these plants, some only an inch or two across, and this one about 5" across, and all past their blooming period, so we missed the showy yellow flowers. They were growing on the north side of Lake Crescent at 580' elevation.

Description

This ubiquitous plant has puzzled me for a long time, and turns out to be Prunella vulgaris or Self-heal, a plant with many medicinal properties that grows on every continent. This low-growing plant with bright purple flowers, almost 1" across, is in the mint family. Here it's growing at 580' along the path beside Lake Crescent.

I was very disappointed to find Western Poison Oak, and quite a lot of it, growing along the path on the north side of Lake Crescent at 580'. This was the first time I've found poison oak in Washington state.
