Shale barrens

As of late in the day on Monday the 10th, the bloodroot is about done at the Walton Tract. The Twin leaf and Trout Lily have also passed. However, the trillium are just coming out with some pretty dark red trilliums right along the entrance road. Also, a special treat of shale barrens are about peak right around the old shale quarry on the main road in the Walton Tract. Just after the road forks a couple of times and crosses the creek, start watching on the right for an amazing variety of Bird foot violets.
