The visitor center did provide us access to a few trails, for free. First, there is a one mile wetlands loop just outside the visitor center; second, a short walk East from the parking lot takes you under the highway and in to Seaquest State Park, where there is a campground and several miles of forested trails. It is beautiful here! Behold...
|10am on the wetlands trail and it's still cloudy...|
This was a railroad bed during the heavy logging days.
|A little grooming...|
|Bright splashes of spring here and there...|
|Just a few lilies on the verge of blooming|
|Another lush forest to stroll through!|
I LOVE all this green!
|It's awesome when you stop for a potty break and see something you wouldn't have seen otherwise!|
These are monotropa uniflora, aka ghost plant or corpse plant.
|The sun came out while we were in the forest so we headed back to the wetlands for lunch...|
and the mountain was out!
|Tomorrow, my friend, we will give you our full attention!|
