Here are the black berries, they're just starting to flower.
And I discovered four huckleberry plants that I am very excited about. I bet I can find more, but I didn't want to go tromping into the underbrush. There are lots of stinging nettles out there as well as huckleberries, and I didn't want to get into those. But the plants are much easier to find now while the berries are still red before they turn to blue.
And I learned these are called salmonberries. I read that they're edible, but I haven't tried any yet. Plus, there's not very many of them.
And I discovered these are wild cucumbers. They are not edible, as this brave blogger learned. But they are so strange! They don't look like anything that would belong out in the woods. They climb up the branches of the cedar trees and look more like an alien invasion, than a wild plant.
And here's an old saw blade that washed in. It's probably remnants of the logging community that was here around the turn of the century.
And here's my dinner cooking and the tent all set up. It's just waiting for me to go camping.
And finally the little snail.

And as a bonus post, I have the owl cross-stitch I made for my wall. I still think he looks a little like a penguin, but I like him.
