  1. 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 view at War Spur overlook is nice with the laurel in bloom:

    The ferns against the rock make for an interesting picture:

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

    to deep red:

    Some were just in the bud stage:

    Finally, the yellow stargrass added interest:

    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.
