I've seen this vine throughout the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie, generally fairly low (below 2000'). Never seen it flowering. Any ideas? Thanks!

With every passing hour our solar system comes forty-three thousand miles closer to globular cluster M13 in the constellation Hercules, and still there are some misfits who continue to insist that there is no such thing as progress.

Stag horn fern, not really a fern.

You can upload an image to https://plant.id for a quick identification. Image above produces the clubmoss result as mentioned. Use caution. That vine is explosive!

I remember Mr. Wizard always exploding licopodium power and wondered what it was.

FWIW I used the SEEK app and it identified it immediately from the photo.

Thanks, Huron! plant.id 's initial photos look good - though later shots seem quite different. I will have to investigate further... I will have to bookmark that site!

My high school chem teacher used the stuff to demonstrate the risk of aerosolized powders. He first tried to ignite a small pile of the powder with a bunsen burner (negligible result). Then he put a bit of the powder under a bucket with a lit candle, and also a bit of tubing from the outside. Squeezing an attached bulb blew some of the powder into the air within the bucket, which ignited & took off with a bang, bouncing off the lab's ceiling. Probably wouldn't be allowed to do that today!

navy firefighting school demonstrations: throw powder sawdust into oxygen rich environment like campfire and you get explosion...many of us have done that and fairly well known... flour mills grinding wheat and churning out fine particulat flour powder builds up in ventilation system when over taxed armature shorts out and ignites the fine powder in the air blowing up the mill.....has happened quite often. now the biggie::: instructor holds up a round steed bar and says this will also explode under the right conditions...we all laugh sure sure steel exploding...... steel being milled in machine shops produces a very fine powder dust of steel particles, those who have worked in areas like this know about how fine this steel powder dust can be...exposed to oxygen rich enviroment it will explode....ask the navy..blew up destroyer tender..someone layed down oxygen acetiline cutting torch without turning it off..someone else tripped over the hoses knocking the torch to the deck and igniting the accumulation of fine powder steel dust....boommmmm..
