Shakerag Hollow Hike - Jan


Sewanee Tennessee.


We had 4 hikers: Jan, Joni, Gary and Silvia.  The day was absolutely stellar for a wildflower hike and the hollow did not disappoint.  We hiked and flower gazed from the University gates to Green’s View through Shakerag and back by Beckwith’s point and the golf course.  After that, a couple of us went out to enjoy the view at Piney Point.  The flowers were spectacular and we saw Dutchman’s Britches, Phacelia, Larkspur, Poppies and lots of white trilliums.  Every rock seemed to be covered in purple blooms!  We spied one early Jack in the Pulpit just emerging from the leaves.  We were thankful to several knowledgeable folks along the way-who helped us identify the flowers and please forgive me if I’ve taken liberty with the exact names.  This is truly a magical place in spring time.
