A Fabulous Ride Through The Ward Pound Ridge Reservation In Search Of Mountain Laurel

Last Sunday, I went horseback riding with a small group of friends.  It was a beautiful day and Muffin Dowdle suggested we ride through the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, which is practically in Muffin's back yard.  The Ward Pound Ridge Reservation is the largest park in Westchester County, New York.  Muffin remembered seeing beautiful mountain laurel blooming there a year ago, so we set off in search of this flowering shrub that grows wild in wooded areas of the eastern United States.
