The tree right next to it was bald, so I sort of thought that this might be the bark from it, but of course I could be wrong too.

Headed out for a soggy loop in the gorge this past Saturday, from the Oneonta Trailhead up the Oneonta Trail to Franklin Ridge, down the Larch Mountain trail toward Multnomah Falls, then back to the car on Trail 400. Our route highlighted on the Forest Service topo map. http://farm3.staticflickr.com...

Thanks for all the corrections, Sean! :oops: It'll probably take me a few more trips to get it all straight, though I certainly don't mind practicing. :)
