A late June walk

At this time of year it's hard to sit in front of the computer and work on my blog, but here are some pictures from a late June walk through the Allegheny Mountains.

The elderberry are in full bloom promising a bountiful crop of berries for the birds and maybe a few for me too.

The flower of the Persimmon tree. While barely noticeable it will soon be followed by the orange fruit that the deer so eagerly seek out in the fall.

The Rhododendron's are brightening up the steep mountain hollows with their showy blooms against the dark green foliage.

Hey Bill

A coworker saw a grouse with 4 little ones about 3 weeks ago. That's all the birds I've heard of. Going to chase with smallmouths tomorrow to get my mind off the grouse.
