Fun wildflower hike this afternoon in Shakerag Hollow with Nate Parrish, a grad student in field botany at Austin Peay State University. Nate is doing a flora of the Walls of Jericho, and Dwayne Estes is his advisor. Nate promised to lead a hike down there for the herbarium, probably this summer. I told him I’d be sure to include the long ascent out of the gorge (1000 feet elevation change over a mile of trail) in the description, and he said, “Be sure to say it’s an 8-mile hike. That’s the important thing!” Will do, and I’m already looking forward to it. If we are able to schedule it, the date and details will be printed in the upcoming issue of The Sewanee Plant Press.
