Wild Bearries

The salmonberries are the first to come on – and they’re here!  I like them a little bit riper though.

I see a new white wildflower and zoom in.  I thought the brown things were the seed tops of grass.  But they are actually flowers too.

It’s amazing what you can see if you take the time to look closely (metaphor alert!  I don’t have to spell it out for you, do I?).

I don’t know what kind of ferns these are but they grow like grass.

We have tall, spindley, ferns

Then we have the ones that grow in clumps.

I like the curly ends and the way they unfurl in the spring.

So I’m wandering around looking for more wildflowers…

Who did this?!

…and see this!  Where are my scat experts?  Would you say bear?  It is definitely NOT elk.

Well, actually, after a little research I found out that if elk have a rich diet they can poop a pie too.  Since I didn’t see any bear tracks, I’m thinking this has to be an elk pie.
