What Happens When 2 Naturalists Who Also Blog Get Together & Explore

A fellow Maryland Master Naturalist invited me to explore one of her favorite places: North Point State Park. I’ve only been there once, for a rest break on a bike tour of Baltimore. She, on the other hand, has a long history of visiting the property.

As a blogger, she leans more toward photography; I lean towards the writing. It will be fun to see our perspectives of the same visit through different lens, literally and figuratively. Since we will have similar photos, I promised to let her post first. But this is one photo she does not have.

Walking along a trail, we spotted something pink in the woods. We had to explore further, because:

  • it was pretty
  • and we didn’t know what it was

I stood along along the trail while she bushwack’d through bramble and poison ivy to get a close-up pic (yikes!) , and so it could be identified later. Success! Click on the orange font to See a close-up pic of the pretty pink bloom, a pinxterbloom, on her blog.
