  • Welcome to Plum Landing.

  • ♪ ♪

  • See?

  • Right there?

  • Mount X.

  • Mysterious, unexplored

  • and very tall!

  • I found this map tucked into an atlas.

  • It must be 100 years old.

  • Very old for you.

  • For me, not so old.

  • Anyway, I would love to make an explorers' game

  • about Mount X.

  • Will you go there to observe, explore

  • and report your findings?

  • - Yes! - Yeah.

  • Fantastic!

  • You guys are the best.

  • So the Plink, as usual, can take pictures,

  • show maps, speed through time.

  • But I've added a few new features.

  • Push here, here or here

  • and it can read temperature and elevation,

  • stick to any surface

  • or measure a moose.

  • Measure a moose?

  • Why would we want to do that?

  • You never know, and it pays to be prepared.

  • Okay, three groups this time.

  • Clem, you're group one.

  • Cooper and Oliver, two.

  • Gabi and Brad, you're number three.

  • - Yay! - Awesome!

  • And here are your bubbles.

  • Bye!

  • Bye, Plum!

  • See you!

  • See you later!

  • Bye!

  • (blows a kiss)

  • Don't forget to Plink.

  • (kids cheering)

  • (humming)

  • I love my bubble.

  • Oh, my gosh!

  • This is so beautiful!

  • ♪ ♪

  • (Plink beeping)

  • I'm here, Plum.

  • This is the most beautiful place I've ever been.

  • I might have to write a poem.

  • I knew you'd love it.

  • Just be sure to observe everything you can

  • and take lots of notes.

  • I will.

  • Bye.

  • Oh, mountain.

  • Oh, lovely mountain.

  • Spiky with snow and...

  • What is this?

  • Lichen.

  • Species Xanthoria.

  • Typically a fungus and algae growing together.

  • Lichen can survive extreme environments,

  • from the cold arctic to the hot desert.

  • Wow.

  • You're a tough little guy.

  • Spikey with snow and lichen.

  • Sea of white and...

  • ...blue.

  • (Plink beeping)

  • Hello?

  • Hey, Clem.

  • How's it going?

  • I love this mountain.

  • You don't mind the snakes?

  • Snakes?

  • What snakes?

  • We've seen two already.

  • I don't know what kind they are,

  • but they're black and red

  • with a white stripe down the middle.

  • It's a red-sided garter snake.

  • Not poisonous.

  • Phew, did you hear that?

  • Apparently, it's a red-sided...

  • (yelling)

  • Cooper!

  • You scared the snake.

  • He was trying to strangle me!

  • Dude, he was trying to get to the ground.

  • He thought you were a tree.

  • (giggles)

  • I have to go, okay?

  • I need to take measurements.

  • Have fun with the snakes.

  • Okay, temperature is 46 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Brr...

  • That's pretty chilly for summer.

  • Elevation...

  • 12,300 feet?

  • Depth of snow pack.

  • Six feet, two inches.

  • Type of rock: limestone.

  • Life-forms?

  • Hmm...

  • Not much.

  • But there's lichen,

  • and that little blue flower is an alpine forget-me-not.

  • No trees, no bushes.

  • And definitely no snakes.
