i think this is arrowleaf balsam root starting to poke its head up
and a flower!
birds singing again, almost time to start getting out before work- which is way better for me. starts the day off right & i don't feel like i should have the blackberry with be b/c it's during the work day (never mind that i'll have started early to justify time on the trail, or that we do all get a lunch hour, it's just how i am).
have a great weekend- happy trails!
