Description

Multiple Sitka Spruce trees present throughout forest. The trees were relatively tall so it was difficult to identify them form just their needles, which is why I used their cones as a confirming factor for ID.

Habitat: Mixed conifer sitka spruce forest nestled between the oceanside and marshy areas. Very moist & dense forest at sea level.

Vegetation: Ground cover species present included Gaultheria shallon, Vaccinium spp, Maianthemum dilatatum, & various mosses.

Weather: Overcast day, slightly cloudy and drizzly. Cooler by the shore, around mid 60's/

Route:
Take 101 West and follow signs to Ocean Shores.
