    Hey KD, can I post the one I got right elsewhere?
    "LIVE FREE OR DIE...DEATH IS NOT THE WORST OF ALL EVILS." Gen. John Stark. "by reason of much foule weather and Extreme Bad Woods to travel in..." From the letter of my Great Uncle, Samuel Willard (accompanied by my grandfather Henry), to Governor Dummer on August 16, 1725, explaining the reason for his return, being instructed to "range all the country", of the Wawobadenik (White Mountains) July 19-August 16, 1725. I am a 13th generation New Englander and proud of it.

    #4 is Mountain sandwart...one of the longest blooming, subtle and hardiest plants in the alpine zone.

    It is often found growing in the trails mid summer, and should be blooming for seek the peak.

    Still pondering 2 and 8. Both look familiar...
