The Beaver Run Low Water Impoundment at the beginning of our trek.
Cooling off in Sanders Draft before we climb back up to the plateau.
Hiking along Red Run Trail. The entire forest has an understory of lush green ferns.
The last heath meadow of the trip. The blueberries were sooooo sweet!
Sam and six hikers walked by this rattlesnake lying in the shade. Reds spotted it out of the corner of her eye.
Pearly Everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea) lined the roads. It is frequently used in dry flower arrangements.
Steeplebush (Spiraea tomentosa), a small woody shrub, common in the sunny areas here.
White Baneberry (Actaea pachypoda). Found along the Red Run Trail. Dainty clusters of small white flowers are precursors to these berries.
The Blusher (Amanita rubescens) found along Sanders Run Ski Trail.
