Mother's Day Hike Wild Flowers

For Mother's Day Connie and I hiked the Mt. Van Hoevenberg East Trail in Lake Placid. It's 4.7 miles round trip and took almost 3 hours. There were wildflowers the entire route and the view at the top was incredible.

Hobblebush was a first for me.

Painted Trillium

  Purple Trillium 

Spring Beauty

Trout Lily

The trail was constructed with low stone stairs and switchbacks making it an easy climb to the summit.

A panoramic view :)

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!

I'll be back soon with a finished Ladies' Aid Album quilt. Here's a preview.

Enjoy the rest of the week!
