Upstate Field Trip: Mt. Mitchell, NC
July 13, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
Join leader Rick Huffman for a trip to North Carolina in Search of Mt. Mitchell’s Purple Fringed Orchid. This will be a park and stroll, low stress field trip. The July temperatures should be a little cooler in the mountains. We will investigate the edges and overlooks of the Blue Ridge Parkway. At this time of year, we can expect to find blooms of Fly Poison, Rosebay Rhododendron, Fire Pink, Bee Balm and numerous others.
Meet at the Ingles parking lot in Landrum, SC at the intersection of SC Hwy 14 and I-26 at 8:30am to form carpools. Bring a lunch, water, hat, sunscreen, hiking shoes or boots, and a walking stick if needed.
