Are you going trillium? We could go and trip over other people besides just tripping over each other.

lol! No I'm not going. Sounds interesting though. I would like to know more about medicinal uses of natives. Gotta get around to getting a book one of these days. I thought we had some people near there though that might be interested!

Then I'm not going to go either. It would have been fun to go with somebody I know but I'm not all that interested in medicinal uses of plants. The hike through the Sandhill Wildlife area would have been nice. We could go it on our own though.

That would be fun! I think it's maybe 45 minutes to an hour north of me. I want to say Necedah refuge where the whooping cranes are is close to that as well.

Let's pick a weekend and do it. Any other place you'd like to try? I've got my eye on a few others.

You all are making me jealous. Anyone in the Mid-Atlantic interested in a hike?

She's about 3.5 hours away from me but I had a blast with her the last time. It is so worth it to reach out and meet somebody. So many of us don't list what state we're in that it's hard to figure out where we're all coming from. I wish it was mandatory to list what state we were in.

Maybe sometime in Sept when the fall colors start? I have been working crazy hours lately, and almost every weekend. I'm sure we'll find somewhere to get in trouble...err I mean explore!

Definitely... explore. Let's do it from more of a vertical position this time. Weekends are best for me. No days off for a long time.
