Tis the season for blazing star. I found a nice patch of these in full bloom adjacent to a large meadow.
I was happy to find this large meadow after leaving the trail.
An interesting bug visits some Queen Anne's Lace flowers.
A vine of some sort climbs up a pine tree.
Everywhere I went the goldenrod was blooming nicely. This little scene seemed to represent fall with all the rusty orange and yellow colors.
This isn't a great photo, but I just love seeing a nice open forest that you can wander through freely. The soft bed of pine needles everywhere was a bonus.
These photos were from a recent trip to SC. I took lots of photos so I will be posting them gradually in the coming days. Stay tuned.
