Clear and cool conditions with a little bit of breeziness continued for another day.
Rowan and I made it to the 800 ft viewpoint on Verstovia in just right around the same time as our prior best for the season. That was good, but even better was we didn’t feel too bad about it (I even got a thumbs slightly up from Rowan).
On the way down we stopped briefly to enjoy the sun near the small mossy streamlet that is a short distance up the trail. While sitting, I noticed a stream violet flower out – the first non-shrub I’ve seen in flower this year. (On the way up I had noticed quite a few leaves and one flower bud, but no flowers).
