Handlan in Charleston Gazette Last Monday we traveled fa- miliar trails--Jenkins and Low- er Donnally Hollows--after a full week of trail walking in Pocahontas County. Most striking of the differ- ences observed was the disparity in growth development of plants common to both localities. Eid- er was in bloom in Pocahontas County. In Kanawha County the bloom had been replaced by flat heads of green berries. It seemed strange to walk trails virtually devoid of purple flow- ering raspberry, red berried elder and pipe vine--which are "everywhere" around Camp Thomwood. The oaks. maples <excepting mountain maple) and beeches looked alike in both localities., Sourwood was virtually absent in Pocahontas and common in the area of Kanawha City. Birches, one of the common trees of the Pocahontas hills, were absent here. Pitch pine and scrub pine in Kanawha County were a poor substitute for the grand red spruce and white pines of the Monongahela National Forest area of Pocahontas County. Birds? Carolina wrens greeted us every quarter mile along our Kanawha County route. In Po- cahontas we heard the almost incomparable song of the winter wren. In the winter wren's habi- tat were red-breasted nuthatches, pine siskins, brown creepers--which are strictly winter visitants in Kanawha County.

Yellow-billed cuckoos were calling "cow-cow-cow" in Kanawha County. Their close cousins, the black-billed cuck- oos, were the common represen- tatives of their genus in Poca- hontas. The "Canadian Zone" birds of Pocahontas County naturally are of greater interest to a low lander who sees them only in migration or in winter than are our own summer residents--but there's a tremendous interest in birds and their behavior in any section of this or any other state. But one thing Pocahontas County has which we of Char- leston cannot equal. Cool, al- most cold nights and mornings and a fresh tang to the air which our industrial plants can't touch! DEATHS Levi V.
