Went for a walk in the high country to the west of here yesterday, on Salt Pond Mountain, at about 4000 feet. Flora very different up there.

First, the ferns are magnificent:

The flame azaleas were prolific and the most intense colors I've ever seen, beginning with yellow:

I love the ferns against the rocks. I used to live in Philadelphia and did hiking and backpacking in the Appalachian Mountains. Your pictures remind me of the Great Smokies.

Pa, what a lovely hike. Thank you for taking us along. Are those azaleas at the end? The mountain laurel puts me in mind of Connecticut, where I used to live.
