At the bottom of the hill, there is an opening. The vegetation changes and is dotted with a few sunny flowers of Erigeron philadelphicus or Fleabane.
This bog-lover - Yellow Skunk Cabbage Lysichiton americanus has lost its wonderful yellow flowers, but now has magnificent green beefy leaves.
At this point, I regret not having photographed the leaves more carefully - is it a Cinquefoil or Ranunculus?
