Mr. Morrie Drees, a local gentleman whom I've enjoyed getting to know in the past year or so, is very knowledgeable about the area, its history, wildlife and plants. I could listen to him talk all afternoon. When he offered to take my husband and me for a hike to an area once inhabited by Native Americans, we jumped at the opportunity. The view was amazing from the higher vantage point to which we hiked.

Though artifacts are long gone or long buried, we scouted out plants such as this Hastate Leaf Dock (Heart-winged Sorrel)...

And beautiful wildflowers such as this Spiderwort...

One Spiderwort plant produces a multitude of short-lived blooms each day. If you look closely you can see that some of the petals were already curling up, though it was only mid-day.

Thank you so much for a great adventure, Mr. Drees!
