Skinny Dip Falls – September 28, 2018

There were some questions on the walk about the two different “Mountain Fetterbushes”. In the pictures below you can see the difference between the deciduous Eubotrys recurva, which we saw on our walk, and the evergreen Pieris floribunda, seen along the Parkway near Graveyard Fields. (Click on any picture to zoom)

Parkway South – August 24, 2018

Great drive. LOTS of plants & pictures! Includes stops at Wagon Road Gap, Log Hollow Overlook, and Wolf Mountain Overlook. The Balsam Mountain Gentian (Gentiana latidens) weren’t blooming yet, but you should be able to see Ken’s previous video of a bee entering a flower in the link at the bottom of the page.
