180 million years ago, during the age of dinosaurs, in an area now lying across Kentucky and Virginia, a vast inland sea receded, leaving in its wake a veritable cradle of botany. Meanwhile, the river that is now Russell Fork got about the work of carving out an immense, spectacular gorge, renowned as the largest east of the Mississippi.

In the wilderness surrounding Breaks Interstate Park, fractal ferns, galax, colts foot, tea berries and a profusion of fungi and moss species dot an undergrowth of rich greens with their bright yellows, oranges, and pinks. Hike one of the park’s trails to get a view of these magnificent colors.
