And it's especially spectacular through your lens, Tom! Many (many) years ago, soon after it was created, my wife and hiked a portion of the Shawnee Backpack Trail. It was May--I remember vividly because all the dogwoods were in full bloom--but we didn't enjoy the trail; it was like walking on a roller-coaster, up one ridge and down into the next hollow, over and over and over again. It's nicer to see it through your eyes.
That you everyone!Number one is Hypoxis hirsuta, and the fern, I don't know- the most common species along the roads at Shawnee seemed to be interrupted fern.Tom
