Mountain Laurel in Bloom

The mountain laurel is in bloom along the West River Trail. If you have not walked the trail to/from the Rice Farm Road trailhead lately, now is the time. Enjoy!

Kalmia latifolia, commonly called mountain laurel, calico-bush, or spoonwood, is a broadleaved evergreen shrub in the heather family, Ericaceae, that is native to the eastern United States.
