Note:

We we're in quadrant two at around two o'clock, and the foliage around the creek was very dense.  rhododendron, alder, and pine trees riddled the area and made up much of the large canopy.  All of the trees as well as the large rhododendron shrubs contained thick moss.  Around the trees blackberry bushes, scotch broom, salal, huckleberries, willow saplings,sword ferns, and small ground vegetation including wild strawberries. Consequently around the creek we also saw nats,flies, bees, dragonflies, and a tadpole.  By the water there was many small animal burrows and a possible bear trail. We came into contact with some trash as well including styrofoam, candy wrappers, and a teething toy.  In conclusion we did our final test on the creek. Our results came back for the water flow as 9.41 seconds per meter flow and the deepest depth was recorded as 43 centimeters deep.
