    I just saw tons of skunk cabbage on my hike last week. Kewlist thing about them imho is how they produce heat that melts snow around them. One site said they can hold a 60-70 degree temp even when they are covered in snow.

    Yes thats true! Mine came up a little later this year, but the truth how they generate the heat is, they use stored starch in their roots from the previous growing season to initiate the inflorescence and generate the heat. Early to bed, early to rise for the skunk cabbage! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Did you hike through a swamp?
