It is sort of a magical place. There are plants that only live there. Very hostile conditions. It is a large outcropping of granite that basically is untouched. Plants grow in the shallow "dishes" or moss-beds.
Reindeer Moss...The limit the number of people who have access and require visitors to walk only in certain areas.
Water runs off the granite quickly. This is called the "ephemeral stream."
There are a few areas with shrub and some lillies...
This species of mounding Quillwort is only found at Heggies RockThe plants have wonderful names like Mounding Quillwort, Pool Sprite, Merlin Grass, and Granite Elf Orpine. (I have to admit Hogworts came to mind!)
So today I am sore and tired but very happy went on the photo shoot!
Sedum which is what most photographers go to Heggies to shoot...
