The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Appalachian Excursion in 2007!

Return to the Trip Overview

Alas, I must have used up my karmic credits, for shortly after Jim and his partner left, a slight drizzle began which turned into a torrent of heavy rain. I hid under the trees and watched the seep in the rain, but eventually my arboreal sanctuary became as drippy a place as the open areas in the seep. I used my diffuser as a rain hood to photograph this pretty Sabatia angularis.

My trip, alas, was over, so I dragged my sodden self and gear through the now soaked and dripping vegetation, to my waiting rental car. I did a quick clothing change into something dry, wished the plants well, and drove back to my hotel in Tennessee, to fly back to California the next morning.
