13.04.2022 Flint River directly above Lake Blackshear (GA, Sumter & Dooly Co.)

The artificially dammed Lake Blackshear has its northern end at about the latitude of Drayton and merges back into the Flint River there. We started with a boat at Camper’s Heaven pier south of GA 27 and headed north on the Flint River for about 6km until we turned back near a power line that crossed the river. The west banks of the river in particular consist in part of considerable steep slopes on which numerous R. flammeum thrive. Climbing these slopes directly above the river was a tricky affair in places because of their steepness and the associated danger of slipping. However, we also saw a few plants on the east side of the river just before our turning point. All of the rhododendrons shown here are R. flammeum unless otherwise stated, so I am not including captions for them.
