SAPS Impromptu Trip to see Fringed Gentians at Trackrock Access Rd
We scheduled an impromptu trip over to Trackrock Gap Rd in Georgia to see the glorious Fringed Gentians blooming. We got a tip from David Fann that they were now blooming and quite exquisite. We were not disappointed! Nancy Davis and I drove from Franklin and met Jan Kowalsky, Joyce and Jean Hall, Susie and David Fann and Susu Davis. We admired the ones along the road then stopped at the field and braved the hornets, insects, burrs, and snakes to weave our way into the field and admire and photograph the gentians. We were accompanied by the local guard cat that is known to kill copperheads so we were safe.
Below are images from the field.
The following photos were contributed by David Fann
