After moving to Huntingdon, PA, it turned out that we’ve left South Jersey but not the barrens. There’s a pine barrens - where I worked almost 70 years ago - State Game Lands near US322 west of State College which we plan to explore, and Appalachian Shale Barrens in several areas nearby. In fact we’ve already visited a couple of the latter and have photographed some plants unqiue to them including a PA state rarity: Shale Barren Evening Primrose, Oenothera argillcola. The Pine Barrens sugar sand trails have ben replaced with steep, rocky, rutted versions, just as daunting. Really miss the Pinelands of South Jersey and our friends there but we're having fun in a totally different ecological region.
