While comparing differnt textures of bark we noticed fungus growing.
Some of the trees had moss on them. This one that is rotting is covered in it.
Some of the trees that were down had signs of insects.
This tree told a story. A woodpecker was here.
This tree was wet on one side. This is when I pointed out that all of the trees had more moss on the north side.
We had a wonderful hike. It was well overdue and now that it's cold again, it makes it that much more meaningful.
