More notes from last week’s trip to West Virginia.
Below the pulloff for the roadside view, the vine called traveler’s joy sprawls over the rocks.
A wood lily rocks gently in the wind, doors thrown open to all six points of the compass.
Yellow birch: the straight & narrow path is never dull.
Ground beetles take the place of dinosaurs in a forest within the forest where flowering plants are still a distant rumor.
Rank & deadly, false hellebore raises a green panicle above leaves already half-dead, turning color for no one.
On the summit where we found snow in late October, fireweed blooms against the spruce.
