In the Landscape

Road Trip

September 4, 2019

As summer begins to wane this week in the northern hemisphere, our hosts get personal and share the landscape details of their summer road trip through the Appalachian mountains. From New York to New Orleans, we talk the landscape scenes and changing phenotypes of plants as the latitude and elevation change. We notice so much in the travel landscape from the street trees Knoxville, Tennessee, the Bluffview sculpture garden of Chattanooga, Tennessee, a special tree sighting in Birmingham, Alabama, and the beautiful water adapted species of Louisiana.
