While the kids were looking up to climb to the top of the rocks, I was investigating the native flora.
In my area, we have Jewelweed (as kids we called it Snapdragon and some people use the name Touch-Me-Not) but ours is orange. I had never before seen yellow Jewelweed. Isn't it pretty? It grew all along the paths at the base of Smugglers' Notch.
And to go along with the yellow theme....the first autumn leaves...
Next stop....Mallett's Bay on the shore of Lake Champlain in Colchester, Vermont. Stay tuned!
