Oh, hello, little orchids! What a pleasant and serendipitous discovery. Mount Defiance seems to live up to its name, as these flowers, traditionally thought of as delicate and finicky, are growing so well. You go, orchids, four for you, orchids!


Time for Little Turtle’s favorite game – Spot the Turtle! Can you see him? The Girl had to have LT’s hiking buddy point him out. Hint: he’s not in Starvation Creek, thank goodness.
