This is the first time I've seen a clam's trail. I think it's Protothaca staminea (Pacific Littleneck Clam).

My volunteer team is always looking for the invasive European Green Crab for the UW, and we sort through hundreds of Hemigrapsus oregonensis (Green Shore Crab). We noticed how hairy these crabs' legs have become by September!

Description

These low growing plants with reddish stems were growing among the pickleweed in the muddy sand, exposed during low tide in a lagoon. The next photos show the hairy buds and stems. I wonder if this is Portulaca oleracea (Common Purslane), the species suggested by iNaturalist?

Description

I wonder why there are so many dead little moles and shrews lying in the paths? This is the second time I've found a Scapanus townsendii (Townsend's mole), and I've also found several other dead moles and shrews. This one measured about 3-4" without the tail.
