Berry cache

While hiking toward the huge beaver dam at Wolf Lake State Forest, Jake and I found this log that had been stuffed full of some kind of fruit. This is likely the cache of an animal that was storing the fruit for later eating. The tree in which the fruit was stashed had fallen, and a trail crew had cut through it with a chain saw, revealing this pile of old seeds.
