Appalachian Excursion in 2005!

Return to the Trip Overview

Another trillium:
Mandy and I spent were kindly given sleep space in Greenville by a friend (Kristen A.), and her fine dog. We fell asleep to the sound of the extremely persistent whippoorwhills in her wooded back yard. Early the next morning we left for our first destination du jour--a lakeside population of Sarracenia jonesii in South Carolina. I had never visited this site before, and had only vague directions on how to get there.

Mandy and I parked our car, and started trudging along a trail system through the woods. We descended towards a small lake. Those who know these sites and are wondering just which Sarracenia jonesii site we were looking for can deduce our intended destination when I tell them that there is a waterfall near this lakeside population of plants, and that there are some plants by the waterfall, too. We didn't have time to look for the waterfall plants--another time, perhaps, if I get more detailed instructions so I don't have to tromp around on sensitive cataract habitats.

As we travelled up and down, left and right, on the winding and forking trails, we saw more nice wildflowers like this lovely Trillium catesbaei.
