First weekend of the 2009 season..
..was foggy, wet and cool. We had very few visitors, so we were all able to brush up on our plant identification and general mountain knowledge...
I's truly amazing how how much trash and waste can be generated by a very few number of visitors.. like everything.. the smallest percentage has the biggest impact.. in this case a very negative impact.
It's been hard to identify this flower, as it's not in any of the books.. however it seems to be sprouting all over the mountainside...
As soft as the springtime soil is, I guess it was just too much effort to bury it.
