    Gale and I started out our Saturday morning at Cranesville Swamp. This area was totally different then what I was used to seeing. The only other area that I have seen to compare it to is the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
    There was almost no water visible, but the ground was saturated. Your feet sunk into the ground.
    CPs that we saw were Drosera intermedia, Drosera rotundifolia, and Sarracenia purpurea.

    The swamp:





    Plants:









    The Sarracenia purpurea grew much better here then in the Pine Barrens. The Pine Barrens had small plants that where not very big and I never saw any large clumps of plants.
    At the Cranesville Swamp the Sarracenia purpurea where in huge clumps of plants. The one clump had to be over 3 across.

    The Cransville Swamp is not all that large and after a few hours we where done looking around. I saw on the internet that a state park nearby, Swallow Falls, which had some nice waterfalls in it.
    So we headed over there to check them out. I noticed that there were a few caches in the park and I thought that I might as well look for them while I was here. Gale never cached before and I gave him the coordinates to put into his GPS. Hes hooked. LOL
    Here is 1 of the waterfalls:

    Then Sunday we both torn down our campsites and you guessed it, hit 2 more caches in the park we were camping in. Then it was off to Carnivorous Plant Nursery run by Michael Szesze. I visited him 2 years ago and he had a great setup. He has done some expanding, and has a lot more plants then before.

    Here is the greenhouse:









    Some an outdoor growing area:





    The new areas:
    This is a small portion of the VFT growing area:



    2 new Sarracenia growing areas:

    Very nice. If you want to see a place that'll compete with the pine barrens, come on down for a visit. Alot of nice caches too, even a cp one.

    A cache is like a group.

    Like your internet cache has all your records.

    No, Here's what it is.

    What is Geocaching?

    Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for gps users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a gps unit. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they get something they should try to leave something for the cache.

    More info can be found here.

    and your friends nursery.
    Scratching another place, that I don't have togo because someone took really gr8 shots of the area.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?
