The rhododendron blooms

Thirty two miles on the trail today. The rhododendron are finally beginning to bloom. They should be beautiful for the Fourth of July. The yellow flower In those below is Jewelweed. If you get into some poison oak or ivy, itis supposed to counter the effect . Just crush it and cleanse the contact area with the crushed flowers and leaves. It will minimize or deter the contact dermatitis usually caused by those plants. Additional pict are of a HUGE tree across a creek along the trail. And an ingenious swimming hole in the middle of the river.
Sorry not to post more. I’m fairly exhausted.
Go make your own breeze and remember; if you’re not having fun, you’re in the wrong gear.

    Yes, Thanks 🙂 When I return home from WV, my joints don’t hurt anymore. It amazes me how much relief cycling affords me.

Any thoughts?
