The Botanist

I hit the jackpot yesterday and today when I ran into Bob Popp and his son Evan

Bob, on the left, is the state botanist for Vermont.

I learned SO much from him about ferns, plants, and trees. I had a million questions and he answered them all. 

I’m in Monson ME and about to enter the 100 mile wilderness, so I may not be able to blog for several days!

    And if you happen to run into Dawn Schillinger or Shea Armstrong, who often hike around in Baxter State Park, tell them I said hello. They are both IHS employees.

    Enjoy the rest of the journey to the Big K. I am thoroughly enjoying your pictures!

    Best in the 100 Mile W. And stop torturing the frogs and toads (typed with a smile)
