"The high elevations of the southern Appalachians give southerners a wonderful and accessible glimpse into Canada. My wife Cathy and I were hiking around Waterrock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway one September when we saw our last black-throated blue warbler of the season."
"One of the high elevation plants we share with northern climes is hobblebush (Viburnum alnifolium). The autumn colors and deep textures of the leaves made a rich setting in which to remember one of our favorite local birds."
