This photoset is from a hike at the Wildcat Ridge Wildlife Managment Area.  This is a fantastic place for a hike; the scenery is very nice and the only place that people seem to frequent is the hawkwatch.  I managed to find a couple populations of Corallorhiza odontorhiza var. odontorhiza, the autumn coralroot, which is the 24th species of orchids I've seen in New Jersey.  To top it off, there were Spiranthes cernua flowering, and two other species of orchid out of season.
