Icy cotton candy

The purpose of this forum is to help people identify things they've seen while out hiking: wildflowers, trees, birds, insects, small animals, animal tracks, even geographical features like buttes or streams

We saw this up the old Fish Creek road (in the Clackamas area). They seemed to all be coming out of rotting alders We saw quite a few instances of them. I don't ever recall seeing them before, but since they require a very specific set of circumstances, I can understand why.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW-What a ride!
