Added November 2013 - PHOTOS OF PLANTS, TREES, SHRUBS, LICHENS, FUNGI ETC. (Searchable) - almost 2500 photos, most with some kind of identification.

1980s WILDFLOWER ARTICLES - descriptions of some local plants, as published in a local newspaper in 1986 (the photos look much better here!)
Reports on some areas I've explored - mainly without trails (no photos... yet...)
