The flowers were covered with rain.
I came across this insect.
Is it a Mayfly?
This wet place is deep in the park, we have found Ladies' Tresses here before. No Ladies' Tresses but we found an Orchid.
Not the most beautiful orchid.
This is Lincoln Street on our way to Bass on August 1st.
We have come here to see what we call our gentian area. We find the water is deep here this year and we can't go through the deepest spots or we will flood our boots. See it's open, wet and there are lots of plants, we can plodge about here!
I find this plant and wonder if it could be the start of a Closed Gentian? I check the field guide and sure enough it is, below is what it will look like in a couple of weeks.
We will be back here soon.
