Liz Weber with Mountain Laurel
Our favorite wildflower. Actually a bush, the pink blooms of which blanket the Valley in May.
Closeup of the delicate blooms
Getting ready to burst into bloom.
Blooming at about the same time in the spring, Rhododendron bushes are abundant in the Valley
Rhododedron fully blossomed
These bushes are so thick in places that they form impenetrable jungles.
Lady Slipper Orchid
These magnificent wild orchids are the rare treasures of this area.
Another yellow Lady Slipper spied along the trail to the Sanctuary climbing area
