Red Trillium Trillium Erectum

Unknown Pond and The Horn, May 2011

A camping and hiking trip. The first evening while hiking in to Unknown Pond, we were caught in a ferocious storm, starting with hail and continuing to a blinding downpour, accompanied by deafening thunder. The first photos were taken the next morning.
