    I'm curious if this is a banded water snake near a lake or creek.

    Just to add one more growing fashion – tree-side reflectors, screwed or tacked directly into the tree.

    Anyone else started seeing these?

    The clothespin/ribbon is a nice idea for both running groups and solo off-trail runners. Easy to place, easy to remove for those on the run. I’m naturally curious if your group uses plastic...
  8. Re: LF hikers, do you remove plastic tree ribbons?

    I think that’s a good question (and would like to hear your view). If inside a NP or designated Wilderness, I would say trail cameras don't belong, and I’m sure published rules cover this. I’m more...

    Here's a typical trailside ribbon ... with no clear purpose.

    When I see a ribbon like this, my patience runs thin like Greg's.

    Over the past few years, plastic ribbons have proliferated on tree branches in the PNW. :(

    I like my darkroom thermometer to be accurate each and every time.

    Precision is less important.

    Driving away without your tripod, because when you returned to the car, you placed it next to the car on the passenger side, where you can't see it when you get in on the driver's side. :(
