keystone species; Mohican's eco-system crumbles without them.
Flowering (or Fragrant) Raspberry, Rubus odoratus with bumblebee, another plant species that says "north woods." This is easily the most beautiful of the Rubus family, and commonly found in the deep shade of the sandstone and Hemlock trees of Mohican.

As we left the forest, a very young fox kit was working the road edge. One might have thought it was play, until a chipmunk with very poor timing chose to cross the road. Immediately this kit pounced toward the prey, with no luck. Hopefully he will get the next one and live long enough to have kits of his own.
Each time I return to Mohican, something amazing happens. And it is all free to those willing to take the time to open their eyes to nature and welcome the wonders of the world into their heart.
