Up on the western sidehill of Kusawa lake.
Cody distinguishes between two ssp of the Juniperus communis in the Yukon.
I cannot find that distinction elsewhere on the Internet . The Juniper communis an extremely varied species over the world.
I know believe what Cody distinquishes as the Juniperus communis ssp alpina, where he states the glaucous stomatal band is broader then the green margin. ( which when you look it is) Elswhere on the Internet i can only find that what i am looking at is the Juniperus communis ssp depressa.

Santalaceae sandelwood family
everywhere in the forest around here in Mendenhal subdivision
lividum - ? lead color, pale
also called dogberry, it is edible, but not palatable
The Geocaulon lividum is a parasitic species, living on the roots of kinnikinnick or asters, that seems possible, see the kinnikinnick in the picture. Yet upon reading here on the Internet, it links the yellow veins to Pine blister. which needs two hosts to live. As there are no pines around here, this seems implausible to me.
