I hade a good geology venture to a favorite hard to get to shoreline bluff. More on the geology for a later post.
Southwest tip of the Bolton Peninsula with Twin Rivers Formation exposure
One of the challenges on the Bolton and northern reaches of Hood Canal is to be alert for poison Oak.
The poison oak does well on the sunny south facing slopes. I find that it grows on the fringe of snowberry patches. The above small plant is within hard silts right at the top of the beach.
The other more constant bane of field navigation are black berry patches. But the start of the berry season has started, so I at least got a few nice snacks.
