Mountain laurel

Mountain Laurel

Race Brook Falls Trail, Southwest Massachusetts. The blooming of mountain laurel in late June is one of the yearly attractions hiking along the Appalachian Trail in New England.

On this hike I climbed the Race Brook Falls Trail (the trail I oversee) and then south up Mt. Race on the AT and then back to the col and north up Mt. Everett, then back down the falls trail. The white mountain laurel were on Race, the pink on Everett (further north by a mile). The bloom is working its way north.

By the way, I’m having a bit of a rough time with the AF on the Ricoh GR, maybe time to read the manual.
