There were several work parties on the trail doing repairs to the trail and building new bridges.
|One of the work crews hard at work making a new log bridge.|
|Crossing the older bridge, next to the crew getting|
a new one ready...
The trail is about 3 miles one way. We hiked about 2 miles in before we turned around. The trail was in good condition as the work crews had already cleared all of the fallen trees off of the trail. A few muddy spots along the trail, but they were few and far between.
|A lovely, fat slug....|
|A little harder to see...but a toad that hopped across the trail|
in front of us...
|I couldn't get the camera to focus as well as I would|
have liked.....but I thought the seeds hanging from
this grass were really unique!
|Western Coralroot Orchid|
|Thimble Berry blossom....I love Thimble berries, by the way....|
|Devil's Club...can't wait til it's in bloom...|
I love it's spiky flowers....
|This was the bottom of the root ball on a tree that|
had blown down....it was a living wall of flowers and
ferns and things....and I though it was really pretty!

The fungus pictures:
|I think this may be tapioca slime mold or brefeldia maxima|
|I can just imagine a small forest fairy has this|
lovely mushroom as sun shade outside her
