A little piece of Scotland beneath the Blue Ridge Parkway

Exposure.Roanoke Hike and Shoot, Roanoke River Trail 7/21/2012.

Somewhere in the shaded knee-deep weeds under the BRP bridge, surrounded by plants which might be distant cousins of the ones from “Day of the Triffids”, I found this thistle plant, which was tall enough that I could shoot it standing upright.
