I stopped at the mouth of the Roaring River to do some exploring. It’s a wonderful spot.
The River and it’s deep canyon are part of the National Wild and Scenic River System.
To my surprise, I spotted my first wild orchids of the season. The small, pink calypso orchid is one of my favorites.
In the same area there were trillium lilies, toothworts, snow queens, anemones and stream violets. Truly, a wildflower garden extraordinaire.
A few butterflies were also enjoying the wildflowers, adding a nice touch to the scene.
