I recently returned from a field trip to the mountains and coastal areas of North Carolina. I had a great time, and had the honor of seeing some endangered mountain pitcher plants as well as the usual squadron of plants you'd expect to see when I toured the coast. Unfortunately, the trip was marred with a number of observations of poaching (S. oreophila, S. minor, S. flava, Dionaea.)
If you want to see my photo essay, take a look at *CP FAQ entry that I just uploaded.
It's not all depressing, btw, there are some pretty nice photos of great plants.
