This photoset is from Ken Lockwood Gorge WMA.  We were searching for Epipactis helleborine, which I found setting seed last August, and did not have to search hard. There were oodles of plants flowering.  This is a special place to me; I've seen four different species of orchid within a property that's less than 500 acres, and it's got some spectacular scenery to boot.
