At the Stump Hollow trailhead


Lunch at the edge of a meadow



Evidence of pine beetle research
Squirrel "middens" - piles of leftover cone pieces



We watched as a squirrel dove into a hole (like the one near the top of this photo), emerged with a cone, then climbed to a branch and ate it, dropping cone debris onto the midden pile
