Oh... and you know whats even worse than that? On the clearest days, I can see 100+ miles of mountains that I immersed myself in wasting vacation time after vacation time. Weeks! Some of it 2 or 3 times!

Nice! Took my sis on a hike a few years ago so she could take some nature shots, we came across 2 huge patches of whites. Most had started to pass, but there were a few pristine specimens.
Rattlesnake plantain is a wild orchid that grows here - not really a plantain at all, think hostas. Grows a 6" spike with a couple dozen flowers, which are maybe a cm across, completely covering the top half.
