Tom Stock, Beth Johnson and I visited a powerline right-of-way along a ridge in Frederick Forest to follow up on an earlier foray that was cut short by rain. Under sunny skies and breezy conditions, the temperature hovered in the low 60’s F. The powerline cut traverses scrub oak-pine-mountain laurel habitat and exposes a lot of rock.
