A few days ago Jeff and I joined a ranger lead group for a wildflower walk opposite the Sugarbush visitor center.
We found a few wildflowers we had not seen previously on our trip.
Long-spurred Violet Viola rostrata
I found two other Morel Mushrooms this trip. Already cooked and eaten.:)
We met a nice couple on our ranger led walk and they joined us for a short hike up..
to see more wildflowers..
The walk is a steady uphill climb..
but, with so many wildflowers to stop and admire,it was an easy uphill walk..
If you see a flower I have not Identified correctly please let me know. I am always learning.
We were very excited to see another new flower.
Purple Phacelia Phacelia bipinnatifida
Rue Anemone Thalictrum thalictroides
Showing off its plume..not fully open yet.
Lemon Trillium; Yellow Trillium Trillium luteum
