Dr. Eddy is Awesome. If this tour is repated, I'll definitely return for a refresher course.
One of the wonderful things about wildflower tours is the fact that there are never two the same. Even if you go to the same place with the same people two days in a row, you will learn something new and different. I love all the great stuff I have learned from Dr Eddy over the years, and I have no doubt that there is still more he could teach me
