    Hi everyone,

    I plan to go in NY state for the october 9-11th weekend, hiking in the Adirondack with my girlfriend.

    Any suggestions of Mounts or any good CP places to visit (in the wild or garden/hobbyists)? I can handle hard hiking by the way, so any suggestion are welcome, but i wish to make a 1 day hike...

    Thank you!

    Where about you going? Up near Fine NY I know of several great spots for Sarracenia and Drosera.

    Hi,

    I know the Adirondack are a vast area, but i don't have any idea of what to hike in fact... Hiking locations will be a priority on CP sites, of course, since it is the reason of the trip, or NY cp diversity shouldn't be very diffdrent from Quebec's ones... But your locations (perhaps told privatly if you fear poaching or such problems) are very welcome anyway, since i dont know yet where i am going :P

    Don't know any CP locations, but Keen Valley has some wonderfull hiking. you can climb 12 of the 46'ers there. Get yourself some wild blueberries at the top of several of the mountains....Really tasty!

    On your hike you should keep a sharp lookoutt for wild flowering dogwood. As i understand, Dogwood Anthracnose Discula destructiva has completely decimated the dogwoods in that area(or was that the great smoky mountains?). This is a very serious disease. any you spot still alive may be disease resistant, and you should note its location and report it.
    that makes no logic

    Very interesting Finch, I,ll take good notes of this... Do you have any species name in latin, it will be easier to me to spot the species this way (do you talk about Cornus canadensis ? or which Cornus ?)

    schloaty: blueberries in october? Here, bears and frosts will make them unavailable for eating by this date, i dont know in NY states though... but if any are available, this quick snack will be much appreciated! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

Although it entered the U.S. at two separate points, genetic analysis has shown that the causal organism is the same. However, the origin of this pathogen remains unknown, as it has yet to be identified on any species of Dogwood occurring outside the U.S.
    My reletives in Massachucetts sat that theres far less of them than there used to be. And identification of more disease-resistant specimans would geatly be of benifit to the horticulture industry and any future recovery efforts. Its like the next chesnut blight or dutch elm disease

    your area may not yet be affected much tough. idont know

    heres some scorces to help you identify the disease
