Today we hiked through Charleston Falls. The pond was alive with fish and frog life. The wildflowers were going crazy en masse everywhere. There were fields of trout lilies, Virginia bluebells, mayapples, and many other spring wildflowers, some growing right out of the cliffs. The waterfall was lively.
The most exciting find was one little morel. These have been very elusive in recent years, and their locations are kept a closely guarded secret, because they’re protected. If I reveal its exact whereabouts, they’ll have to kill me!
This will be in two parts. First, the wildflowers.
