Siouxon Creek 7-27

Post by Hagbard Celine » July 31st, 2016, 10:08 pm

Haven't posted a report in awhile as I have been hitting a lot of the more well traveled and documented locations this year with my son who has just too much time on his hands in the summer :roll: . I have posted a Siouxon report before I believe but we found some interesting things this time that I would like to share.

Such as this David the Gnome scene here...

Or this super weird stuff...

Image

...which was in quite a scenic spot

Image

Or these neat flowers...anyone know them?

Image

Image

and this? :shock:

Image

And finally Chinook Falls, about 4 miles in.

Love that hike! I think your white plants are "Indian Pipe". Nice photo of the gnome scene.

Lovely! Siouxan is great for mysterious fungi. Your orange mystery is some kind of coral fungus.

Thanks for the identifications! :mrgreen:
Out of all the places we go I think Siouxon is my favorite, so much to see and do there and so little people most of the time. I found more of the yellow fungus at Falls Creek Falls the other day...it's spreading!! :o
