A beautiful day for a walk down Bean Shoals Trail (in the Yakdin River Section of Pilot Mountain State Park), and turning right onto the Yadkin River Trail.  An easy walk that can be accomplished, even stopping to identify and photograph wildflowers & admire the scenery, in a couple of hours.  Among the plants in bloom today:
Pinxter azalea, Rhododendron periclymenoides over the Yadkin River
Dog hobble, Leucothoe fontanesiana
Scouring rush, Equisetum hyemale ssp. affine
Silverbells, Halesia tetraptera
Fire pink, Silene virginica
Yellow root, Xanthorhiza simplissima
