Walking through the forest of Red cedars and western hemlocks, we cam across a small area for beach access. On the rocks in the water, somebody came across the exoskeleton of a stone fly. This was a lot larger in size than the mayfly that were crawling on partially submerged rocks. Walking through the forest, we came across various different understory, such as wild ginger, forget me nots, and devil's club. On the fallen log off of the trail, we came across a variety of different mushrooms including a polypore,inky cap, and oyster mushroom. The most notable mushroom was the vibrant orange phaeolous mushroom growing out of a tree stump. This white rot mushroom was hard with a oyster-like pattern on it. The last plant we came across was the poison hemlock. We discussed how that it isn't poisonous to touch by can be harmful if ingested. Additionally, it is part of the carrot family.
