Anyone thinking about going to Mt. Mitchell this wkend needs to check on
the BRP website. As of this AM, the BRP is closed from Ox Creek Rd (north
of the Folk Art Center), to Hwy. 80 due to fallen trees. They think it may
reopen Monday at some point.
I was up there at 8:00 for a hike with friends, and since we could not go
to Mitchell where the temps were much cooler, we just walked on the closed
parkway from Ox Creek Rd up to Tanbark tunnel. When we returned they were
blocking bikers and walkers as well as cars.

Butterflies
Zabulon -- 20+ ( of fresh males and females)
Pearl Crescent - 20+
Pipevine - 2
Tiger ST - 2
Hackberry Emperor - 1 very fresh
SSS - 2
67 species of wildflowers
