These pictures are from the Johnsonburg Swamp Preserve and nearby limestone cliffs.  The hike was very pretty, winding over limestone outcrops and through the valleys between them.  We found a single small colony of Goodyera pubescens and a single flowering large yellow lady's slipper orchid.  Unfortunately, the trail dumped us out on the road on the opposite side of the preserve, and it was a good three-mile hike along the road to get back to where we parked.
