Decatur’s Scenic Roads – Hike August 12, 2008

Gerda and Ivan Gyori led 18 ADKers on a walk along the scenic roads of Decatur. Besides ever changing vistas, many wildflowers were observed including the Helleborine Orchid, observed the previous week at Moe Pond. The hike ended at the Gyori’s house where we enjoyed looking at Gerda’s flowers, particularly a healthy specimen of Edelweiss. Under sunny skies we enjoyed a pleasant lunch and ice cream on their deck.  Photographs: 1) View from Mountain Top, 2) Along the Road, 3) Corn Field, 4) Field Bindweed, Convolvulus arvensis, 5) Joe Pye Weed, Eupatorium purpureum, 6) In Gerda’s Garden Edelweiss, Leontopodium alpinum, 7) Pond, 8) Silo, 9) Barn, 10) Lunch on the Deck, 11) Garden Phlox, 12) Gentian, Gentiana sino-ornata.
