Saxifraga virginiensis, Erythronium americanum
Today Isabelle and I hiked 4 miles here and saw not one other person. At the top we had a great view of the Manhattan skyline. We came across a surprising patch of Trout Lily near the creek, close to the parking area, and a delightful display of Early Saxifrage along the trails. We also came across Hepatica americana, just one specimen, pictured with a purple flower. We were graced with a gorgeous blue dome and mild, balmy temperatures. Not bad for a Monday.
