Fifth goal…

The fourth goal was reached, but maybe there is a fifth goal? Of course, we need to get back to vehicles so we can go home. Indeed a fifth goal LOL!

First, we had a choice. Do we walk on the road or walk through the woods and prairie again? Of course, the woods and prairie won!

An interesting stunted Eastern Red Cedar.

On this fallen log, the shelf fungus was this delightful green.

As the shelf fungus reached the other end, it was pale.

Can you spot the squirrel nest in the distant tree? Squirrel nests are easy to distinguish from a bird nest. They are made of lots of leaves.

Most the Greenbriar were just loaded with their black berries.

The Silver Nightshade’s fruit is about the size of a very large blueberry.

This is something I brought home to look at closer. It could be galls.

An odd occurrence where two trees fell in opposite directions. One went to the left and the other to the right. So did they have different political views?

Large fallen branches! Or were the trunks invisible? LOL

From a distance, this white crustose lichen looked like paint!

A very twisted log. In fact, this indicates it was very old!

A second twisted snag still stood.

Of course, it would be interesting to know the twisted trees’ stories.

Here a critter had a meal of a horseapple a few days ago.

In conclusion, all four or should I say all five of the goals were met on this outing. Moreover, it was great to visit the Garnett Preserve again!

Keep looking!

The more you know, the more you see and the more you see, the more you know.
