We had a nice wildflower hike along Big Laurel Creek in North Carolina under clouds early, then sunny in the afternoon with occasional breezes. The wildflowers were out in profusion with many varieties and many individual flowers. Many flowering trees added to the scene. Because of recent heavy rains, the clear rushing creek stole the show with powerful rapids. A few kayakers were enjoying the flow also. Hikers were Olin Babb, Lee Bockman, Kathy and Jerry Case. Andrew Cleland, Ann Cosby, Carol and Dave Dunham, Judith Foster, Bob Harvey, Carol Idol, Susie Seiler, Jerry Sluder, and Collins Chew.
