Two springs ago (late April) we had the fun of a bike trip with friends in southwestern Virginia, on a trail called the Virginia Creeper trail. The trail was named after the local railroad that used to creep up the sides of the mountain, and the train in turn took its name from the native Virginia creeper vine (Parthenocissus quinquefolia). The bike trail was lovely but our progress was somewhat erratic as we kept stopping to take pictures of scenic views and more importantly, the wildflowers blooming on the side of the trail. Enjoy!
Then last spring (early June) we took a nature walk in Provincetown on another old rail trail. This one was converted to a beautiful wooded walking trail.
The native flowers along this path were different than the ones in Virginia, but equally stunning. If you have a chance to get to Provincetown in the late spring, this is definitely worth the visit!
