I’ve found all kinds of crystals hiking on Mineralogy field studies. Does that count? I kinda knew I was going to find them. lol

a baby deer lying smack dab in the middle of the trail, mom was in the timber keeping a very close eye on us.

Big grizzly I killed with a slingshot! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ (Obviously kidding)

Honestly, I’ve never come across anything other than oddly shaped trees or an occasional deer or little animal. The other day I saw a 3 legged beaver (I assume he lost it in a trap). Honestly, that’s about it. Kind of why I like it. I see weirder stuff at my house lol lol

A rusted-out anti-air gun. Got to love Guam

Tossup. An old abandoned gold mine I wasn’t aware of, or the Lions Mane mushrooms I collected and ate.

Probably a tree that had been blown down directly across the trail in a recent storm. It was too big around to be able to climb over, and extended too far into the heavy undergrowth in both directions to see a practical way around it. We ultimately found a place to wiggle under it (which seemed sketchy) a few dozen feet off the trail and were able to continue on. It was definitely a thing you don’t see every day when out for a walk.

Good one.
I had a similar experience while scouting a swamp. It was a cypress tree and like you said, too big to crawl over.

A cave about twenty feet in diameter. I am only 5’ 10” and had to duck a little to go in. Once inside, the top was higher. Maybe 9 to ten feet. It had a wide smiley face shaped entrance. Inside was a lot of elk tracks and poo. There were scrape marks from the elk antlers on the ceiling. Way cool. Hiking near the coast of Oregon.

Either the wolf blocking the trail or the 12” red rubber dildo.

Different hikes.

A really cool rock that looks like it has foam bubbles on top, but it’s actually part of the rock. I took it home with me. Found it in the New Mexico Rockies.

An animal bone. It had gnaw marks on it.

One time I was hiking on a trail near my college campus and there was a tarp tied to some trees with a mattress under it on the ground. On top of the mattress was condom wrappers and some used, full condoms. ๐Ÿคข

I’ve found a fair amount of colonial ruins and several abandoned buildings which are always cool to explore
