TOPIC: Good Ol' East Kentucky Seng

Good Ol' East Kentucky Seng 4 years 2 months ago #24562

I'm a new poster to this site but like the rest of you, I trully enjoy the hunt for this beautiful plant. There's no other plant like it and I feel it's the best looking plant in the woods. Some are in it for the money, some are in it for the root itself and some are in it for the pursuit of happiness. The woods are my sanctuary and nature is nearly a religion for me. Its my place of peace and contentment so I spend as much time as my blistered feet and poison ivy laced hands will allow for it. Here are some pics of this years finds. Also, my avatar is a pic of a two nice plants I found this year.

Here's a nice patch I rant into on an old coal refuse pile.

Thanks for the comment. I've spent a lot of hours looking over other people's tracks. A Redbull can here, a budlight can there. Its really ridiculous. I always bring their trash out with me. Take only big ginseng and leave only footprints. That's my motto. These places around here have either been mined extensively or have been hunted hard and not allowed to regenerate.

Nice job and welcome to the forum. Love your attitude too. I often pic up every ones trash. I like what you said about what the woods mean to you too.
Good luck,
Latt
