Because of various health events, I have taken three weeks off the trails. For one thing, we all caught Covid. Hope my daughter gets her sense of taste back soon! But now I'll be getting out some, starting yesterday. The Botany Club had a good outing looking at Michigan rarities in the Black and Bear Creeks area. Winged monkeyflower was one of our goals. We saw some, didn't even have to ride a tornado to get there, and didn't meet the evil and territorial warlock on that day.
