While at David Crockett S.P., we took at wildflower hike with the head ranger. Ranger Rachel said a lot had signed up, but low and behold, only Wendy and I were there for the hike. So it became a very personal and one on one experience.
As we hiked the Shoal Creek trail, Ranger Rachel pointed out all kinds of spring flowers that most of us would just consider weeds. She also pointed out the nesting habits of the Blue Heron. They were way up in the trees, causing all kinds of a ruckus because we were in their territory.
If you ever get a chance to participate in this kind of hike, I would highly recommend it. It really opened my eyes to what lives on the forest floor that we seem to just take for granted.
Here is a gallery of some of the wildflowers we discovered on our hike.
