The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Appalachian Excursion in 2007!

Return to the Trip Overview

Within a few hours, I had ascended the high escarpment and had reached an area where a stream coursed out of the forest and continued down a huge, steep exposed rock face. Such exposures are locally referred to as "balds." Here is a picture from my 2005 trip to the site to give you an idea of what the place looks like.

At the top of the rock face, the slope was quite gentle and pitcher plants were growing on the edge of the stream.

If you have excellent interpretive eyes, you might notice the tiny Drosera rotundifolia on the chunk of wood at lower-left.
