Scotchbroom stings....

Out riding this weekend after the wet, heavy typical NW snow melted. Trails were great but all the scotchbroom is laying across the trails. Nice temps so was wearing shorts and short sleeves. My arms and legs look like the cat shredded me. But.....I rode some new to me singletrack so life is good.
No point to the post really.

Carry on. Nothing to see here.

Yeah, that stuff is nasty with no redeeming value. A pox upon whoever introduced that and Himalaya berries to the PNW

At least you can eat the berries and they are tasty. English Ivy and Scotsbroom have no redeeming qualities.

If you don't already have it, I would gladly trade y'alls scotchbroom sight unseen for the insidious multiflora rose. Impenetrable (it was used in highway medians as a crash barrier), bloodthirsty, and attracted to exposed flesh as if magnetically.
