DuPont Visitor Center to Lake Julia Scout – June 23, 2020

Last week, while Penny was walking along Sky Valley Road taking pictures of flowers, I was just a mile or so away walking to Lake Julia taking pictures too! I was delighted to find so many flowers blooming, and delighted also that the rain held off until I was almost back to the car. I don’t remember seeing the Lobelia spicata before, so that was quite a nice surprise. It is on the path to the boat house in case anyone wants to go find it!  Photography by Lucy Prim.

Joe and Mary hiked up from Glassmine, Penny from Graybeard, and we met in the middle – totally unplanned. That way we covered it all.

BRP Ridgeline Trail Scout – May 17, 2020

Sadly there must have been a recent frost that killed leaves and blooms of many of the plants at the top of the ridge – but not the Trilliums! Some pictures were taken along the Parkway adjacent to the trailhead and most of the Pinkshell Azalea pictures were taken along Hwy 215 south/east of the Parkway. Photography by Penny Longhurst.
