Well, it is raining pretty hard, but we will be leaving in about 20 minutes. Since we will be going on a forest service road (I wasn’t aware of that before we left), the trip leader agreed to take us in his 4-wheel drive – thank you sir. Next time we take the Subaru and the hell with the gas costs. The rain has eased up a little in the last 10 minutes, so maybe it will clear. The weather map showed a heavy storm moving from southwest to northeast; hopefully it will pass by the time we get to our first location. Didn’t down load photos, but tonight will include yesterday and today. Spoke to a gentleman very knowledgeable about the area and he gave me directions to a great bog, not too far from here. He said there are some orchids in July, so it sounds worth checking out.
Leaving for the Rain Shadow/Shale Barrens trip in about half an hour. Should be some good wildflowers. Yesterday did Ekalaka Falls and toured the Park with a ranger. Light was poor.
