Gadsden Pastoral

I made it to Torreya State Park finally and snapped about a hundred pictures before the cloud cover cut the trip short. The mosquiters were out in force. I spotted a nice-sized doe leaping out of the bushes as I climbed down to the riverbanks. On the way back, it was in almost the same place.

The river was quiet and peaceful, except for one motorboat revving back and forth. The highlight was definitely the river vista from the Gregory House front stoop, atop one the highest bluffs in the state.

I couldn't find the ashe magnolia, but I made up for it with a montage of the great Gadsden County roadside wildflowers on the way back. This album focuses on that.
