Chestnut Hill Reservoir Walk on Oct 19, 2022

I took another roughly 40 minute walk around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir, looking specifically for different types of land plants. During my walk it was in the mid 50s outside, and the sun was starting to set, which made it feel even colder out. I managed to find primarily angiosperms, as they seemed to be the most common type of plant surrounding the reservoir. I surprisingly had difficulty finding any polypodiopsida, but found many examples of bryophyta and gymnosperms along my walk, just in far less quantity than the flowering plants. Thinking about how each plant I saw might be categorized helped me better understand the differences between each of these plant groups.
