A few weeks ago after the terrible storm we had I went up into Conkle’s Hollow for a walk. The damage there from the storm was much more disastrous than the upper trail at Old Mans Cave.
Jewel Winged Damselflies were flitting around all along the stream bed.
The bees were thankful for the beautiful white blooms.
If you walk slowly and really look around you can spot all kinds of little things happening.
Phlox and Golden Rods grow along Pine Creek which flows
around the gorge of Conkle’s Hollow. On this day we were heading into a dry spell so the waterfall that runs into a small stream that feeds into Pine creek was just a trickle.
Minnows and Water Skippers were all vying for the deeper pools of water up in the gorge.
