If you’ve ever seen the movie groundhog day, you’ll remember that Bill Murray gets to relive a day over and over again until he gets it right. Hiking up and down in the Appalachian mountains is kind of like that – every day you get to experience winter and spring – over and over – as you get above 4000 feet in elevation it looks like dead of winter, then two hours later you drop down to 2000 feet and all these beautiful wildflowers are blooming – it’s amazing. I’m reacquainting myself with all the wonderful events of spring in the Appalachian mountains!!
I’ll try to upload some flower photos when I get better cell service.
