A Great spangled fritillary resting on a Joe-pye-weed
This park has wonderfully maintained backpacking trails and campsites.If the sun was able to peek through the canopy, wildflowers were growing.7/30 & 8/1 2012
Backpacking with my daughter Karin and Caleb.
There is a designated wildflower garden in this park, unfortunately dogs were not allowed, so we did not take the time to visit it. We weren't too disappointed as wildflowers, butterflies and bees were everywhere.

This was one of the most colorful things we saw all day. Although it isn't a wildflower, it is certainly beautiful.
