Default Whitehouse Rocks

Enjoyed a hike up to Whitehouse Rocks in Rocky Fork Wilderness area recently. It's only about 4 miles, but a good steady uphill, and much of it off trail. But it leads to one of the clearest views at Rocky Fork.

Along the way we hiked in a small stream that was full of moss and salamanders. Not sure of this species, probably one of the many Plethodon salamanders.

One of my favorite Trillium species was at peak bloom. Painted Trillium (Trillium undulatum) thrives in places that are a bit higher and drier than the habitats of most other trilliums.

These Duskywings also thrive where it's high and dry!

As does Fetterbush - a real butterfly magnet. This old and faded Spring (?) Azure was feasting on fetterbush nectar.
