Marshmallow root is great at producing mucilage! I learned that mucilage is a carbohydrate that the body has a hard time breaking down.
I had plans to go bike camping this weekend, but due to laziness and a grey + rainy forecast, I bailed. Instead, I spent my Saturday having an early breakfast at Zell’s (German pancake!), perusing the art supply store, drawing, eating burritos, and driving out to Bald Mt for a “sunset” hike. As you can see, it was overcast, but the wildflowers were still amazing in the waning light and the hike up through a fog-filled forest at dusk was eerie and peaceful.

This is a pretty short plant list as we were hiking quickly to catch the sunset, but miss the rain.
