Tin Mountain Conservation Center had a contest at the beginning of June to see who could spot the most Lady's Slippers in a 10'x10' area. The girls love a challenge and so we set off to find the biggest patch of Lady's Slippers we could.
We hit what we thought was the jack pot on Bear Notch Road - 42 beautiful Lady's Slipper blooms. The area was packed with more than 150 Lady's Slippers on both sides of the road. We sent in our entry with high hopes of winning the Tin Mountain baseball hat.
Unfortunately not this time. Someone in Sandwich spotted 100 Lady's Slippers in a 10'x10' area. Oh well. Better luck next time. Still is was really cool to find so many of this once rare flower.
