    As some of you know, at the last minute I was informed that Jay would be in town. We set up sort of an impromptu bog trip that wound up lasting 2 days [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . Well, after 2 days, 1 sun burn, 3 tanks of gas, 2 GREAT hole in the wall BBQ joints and over 700 total miles traveled I must say, it was a BLAST.

    Without furthe adu, on to the pics.



    Alata in St. Tammany Parish. Something some guys like Don Schnell thought where extinct.



    One of the very few Alatas still in flower in St. Tammany.

    Now onto DeSoto Nat. Forest.



    Right passed the tree line at DeSoto



    VERY nice color



    Jay on his belly takin that perfect shot.

    Ok, thats enough for the first half of the trip. I forgot to take a pic of Jays battle scars (he forgot to put on his jeans at DeSoto)


    EDIT: Sorry Jay, I mispelled your last name. The above picture is of Mr. Letchman (hope I got it right this time)

    Anything to turn attention from definitely non-photogenic me ... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    Those plants I'm trying to take the perfect photos of are yellow- and pink-flowered S. rubra wherryi. I'm beginning to convince myself that they're hybrids (S. alata and a few obvious hybrids can be found in the vicinity). Pitchers all look the same, but some clones have lighter petal color (and taller flowers).

    Anyway, if you ignore the big guy crawling through the mud with his digicam, it's not a bad photo. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Oh ... almost forgot:

    The plants just above my head are D. filiformis tracyi.

    Wow!!!! Great pictures guys. Wish there were places around here like those. But this area of Colorado is known more for the mountains than any bogs.

    Thanks for sharing!
