In the Vicinity of Berry Creek
[Photo of False Solomon's Seal accidentally deleted from this spot during editing. I'm going to wait until I get near a decent WiFi connection before trying to fix it.]
At the roadside that marks the spot, there are many Western Dog Violets blooming. They are quite short and fairly well-hidden by the taller wild grasses, Mugwort, and other foliage. This is the only species of violet around here that's violet or blue, most of the others being yellow. And we have a white species, Macloskey's Violet. This one is Viola adunca.
