Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve & Wakulla Springs SP

Wolf Creek Trout Lily Preserve

The trout lilies at Wolf Creek were definitely looking their best today! The slopes were blanketed in yellow:

Part of the goal was to try out the features on our new camera, including the high resolution panoramic feature:

It was a beautiful day for a walk in the woods. If you live in the region I highly recommend a trip to Wolf Creek within the next couple weeks to see the dimpled trout lilies and spotted trilliums in bloom!
