Mike, Sorry it has taken me so long to reply - crazy week! There was plenty of hemlock in the Wright Creek drainage and yes, that impressive Wright Cove overlook on the Cherahala with the ancient hemlock is just above Wright Creek Falls. You can find the timber sale info on the National Forests in N...

Bob,

Cheers,
Josh

Wright Creek - LiDAR Strikes Again!

On May 6th, 2010 Nathan Morrison and I made a trip to Wright Creek, a tributary of Santeetlah Creek in Graham County, NC.

Re: The Rattlesnake Lodge section of the MST

James, I agree with Jess, the 1st photo is of a very distinctive native flower and it is a useful one to practice your identification skills on. I recommend Newcombe's Wildflower Guide for you and other beginners. The flower in question has five petals and is zygomorphic (bilaterally symmetric). It ...

Re: Right Fork of Wesser Creek

Bob,

57 yards strait up? You need to look at the table in the post and note the 176 and 178 ft trees!

Mike,

Thanks for the report. It is wonderful how useful LiDAR is in locating large and tall trees.

Cheers,
Josh
