The weather was chillier than usual, and we had a bit of drizzle on Monday, but that didn't stop us, or the birds!
Simon is an incredible birder and also a very knowledgeable, giving and caring guide. We were mainly interested in seeing the migrating warblers, but of course there are all of the lovely wildflowers blooming this time of year in the Smokies, like this trillium:
Here you can see the forest floor just covered with Trillium Grandiflora:
Here's a closeup of the lovely grandiflora with a buttercup thrown in for good measure:
We had some good friends accompanying us on this trip, and we met a lot of great folks while we were there! As always our accomodations at Snowbird were fabulous and the food was incredible! I was never able to get online with my laptop, so no blogging and only sporadic email checking on their computer. It's amazing how attached I've become to the internet!
more pics tomorrow.............I hope!
