Some images from this past Sunday’s nature trek. Devil’s Ridge received its name in 1863 during the Civil War. It’s said that few men would risk their lives to penetrate these bluffs and thickets during the war as a lot of rough characters would hide out here. About halfway, a little over two miles, you reach the highest point of the ridge. This is where butterflies will gather for an activity known as hilltopping in search of mates (applied to human social behavior – “cruising”). Seventy – five butterfly species it’s said can be found here during the summer months.
