Field Notes
We were out in the stream looking for crayfish. It was warm in the sun. After that I looked for hemlock along the side of the trail.

Supporting Evidence
Photo of my evidence.
I saw a small evergreen tree with waxy needles that I thought might be hemlock. It was right next to the trail.
Photo of my evidence.
You can see the white racing stripes on the underside of the needles which is a characteristic of hemlock.
Photo of my evidence.
In this photo you can see that the needles attach to the branch with a small stalk. That is how I can tell it is not balsam fir.
