[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Since we left on our backpacking trip to Ling Lake in the evening, we knew we were gonna have to camp somewhere in the forest along the way before it got too dark.
This camp wound up being about a half hour into the trail itself in a tiny flatspot that had to be cleared of devil's club before we could set up the tent.
The following morning I checked out the nearby creek, which I suppose is still called "foley creek".
The logging has been left behind and we are now in untouched forest with giant Fir and Hemlock all around.
The leaf you see here photo center is a devil's club leaf. These plants are covered with thorns and further into the summer a bulb or club-like formation complete with thorns that does indeed represent a devil's club.
This was hand-held, so my settings weren't ideal.
