Clifton Forge, Virginia
This beautiful black rat snake was descending a tree near our bus stop.
We had a scavenger hunt at Douthat State Park. "Fabulous prizes" are at stake!
Lunch at the Camp Carson picnic shelter.
After lunch, we made a brief visit to the vernal pool. Two participants decided to risk walking the logs that cross the pool. Fortunately, no one fell in!
A beautiful "Hemlock Varnish Shelf" fungus -- it grows only on hemlock logs.
