Every Easter, we go on a nature walk.

This year we spotted a few new

Large Flowered Trilliums

while walking the paths

around Reynolda.

Unique View of Pilot Mountain

December 28, 2011

North Carolina has a very unique natural feature

called Pilot Mountain, which appears to rise out of nowhere.

Native Americans were said to use it as a landmark

and called the mountain Jomeokee –

The “Great Guide” or “Pilot”.

~~~

This view overlooks Lake Larissa,

a man-made lake in a beautiful setting.

I’m lucky enough to work just a few

minutes away from this area.

see if you can find the ducks on the lake,

Click on the second photo to make out the unusual

shape of Pilot Mountain a little better.

the view from the overlook at the state park.

The trails at Pilot Mountain State Park are also

part of the NC Birding Trails.
