Had some geocaching adventures on Green Mountain and in the Tahuya area today. I was a bit worn out from the previous two hikes so I packed light and only brought my point and shoot camera. The weather has been great for my last three outdoor adventures. I'm glad I ignored the forecasts.
I found what I think is Rhytidiadelphus triquetrus down in a shady boggy area, I've not found it in the wild before. I've only seen it in the lab. I'm forcing myself not to bring home any moss samples, but I could not resist and I did bring home Niphotrichum elongata to look at. I'll have plenty of time to look at moss next quarter and I don't want to burn myself out.
There are some nice woods on Green Mountain, I fear that most of them will be gone soon. Lumber prices are up and there was a guy from Pope and Talbot surveying the nice woods today. Simpson has gone into over time running trains, burning shit in town and logging pecker poles on Dayton Peak.
