Pink Lady's Slippers on Mt. Greylock

It's unusual to find a patch of so many lady's slippers!
The Tuesday Berkshire Hikers hiked the Woodason Trail from the Mt. Greylock Visitors’ Center on June 4th. In one section of the trail we saw many (a hundred?) pink lady’s slippers. They are in the orchid family.

I never pick any wild flowers in the woods. I don't want to degrade the environment or contribute to the reduction of the species. “Take only photos and leave only footprints” is a good rule to live by.
