I didn't realize snails would climb trees! I saw a few snails clinging to leaves at about eye height along the trail.

Photos 3-6 are of host tree in case that helps with an ID. I think it was some sort of ash/Fraxinus, but I'm not very good at trees.

I have no idea what's going on here. At first glance I thought maybe I as looking at some variety of "aphid-farming" ants. But, on closer inspection, those little green nodules on the plant don't appear to be aphids. I'm not sure what they are. There were also quite a few tiny flies (gnats?) walking up and down the stem of the plant. I'm not sure if they had anything to do with the ants/nodules or not, but there were quite a few of them in close proximity, often coming into direct contact with the ants. Although they didn't seem to interact at all, just walking past/over each other.

We seem to get mostly blackberries around here. That said, I didn't realize there were so many Rubus species until I actually took a look at the species list!

Not sure of species, but they were on a maple, so it seems at least plausible.
