Chickamauga redux

Trillium_catesbaei.jpg

As near as I can tell: Trillium catesbaei, with several common names including Bashful Wakerobin.

We returned to northwest GA and redid the damp hike of late March. Despite light rainfall in the previous 24 hrs, we found the creeks and streamlets very easy to cross, and the hike delightful, colorful, actually, with carpets of new plants, mostly wildflowers and (sigh) poison ivy. I may be exaggerating a bit, however.
