Snake Rock from whence our journey began. But how did it get its name? Is it because the shape resemble a snake's head or perhaps someone was bitten by a snake on this very spot? Darn if I know. - added by Ray

Forgive me for cheating a little by inserting an old picture of Bluets from my files. They really were growing on the shore by Snake Rock but the wind was blowing so hard by then that my pictures were useless. - added by Ray
Margie pointed out a patch of Sessile Bellworts growing across the road from Snake Rock so I took advantage of the opportunity. - added by Ray

The clouds became thicker and darker by mid-afternoon. Rain was on the way. - added by Ray
