These shots were taken June 24 at the Morrison Trail on Kinzua Road (Route 59) just across the Warren County Line into McKean County, about 2 miles east of Kinzua Marina.
A week earlier all the Mountain Laurel was as white as a bride's gown and appeared to be in full glorious bloom all along this trail and especially on the drive up to Rimrock Overlook, which is close by. I have never seen the Mountain Laurel turn pink before and thought I might share these photos because the effect may not last long. We'll see.
