Congrats Joe, and thanks to all for the info.
Common Burdock (Arctium Minus)
has large, soft, fuzzy leaves that make excellent emergency TP. so it's natural "mountain money".
i've used it on occasion when hiking, even when i had TP packed.
i know it can be found in the Sierra Nevadas and Coastal Range, not sure where else it's native too, but i think it grows almost every where.
the pic was googled up, but not the info. i just thought it made for a better story than other plants i've used or eaten.
