Buzzard Rock offers clear views back into the 10,000 acre wilderness. That old A 35-105 does not do so well with landscapes, but did OK with this view.

Just beyond Buzzard Rock is one of the most unique botanical areas in our region. The Ball Ground is home to many rare plants, and unusual assemblages. Here are several views of Eastern Turkeybeard - a rare plant of the high and dry places. But notice that the first shot shows it growing in front of a Cinnamon Fern - a plant of the wet boggy places…

The last 8 miles is almost all downhill, on old logging roads, so we kept up a good pace. Only paused once, to photograph this rare orchid - Platanthera psycodes (lesser purple fringed orchid).

Hope you enjoyed the hike, and will share your comments and critique!
