Hi all,

The Bemis BBS route runs from Bemis in Randolph County east across Laurel
Fork and the Sinks of Gandy to its end at the summit of Spruce Knob in
Pendleton County. Habitats include northern hardwood and mixed red spruce
forests, shrub wetlands, and high elevation grasslands.

I encountered 57 species. Some good finds, but sadly the route was pretty
compromised by noise from wind and water. Route additions at bottom not in
taxonomic order:
