I ventured into the Loggy Branch area in May 2016 looking for historic populations of American Columbo
(Frasera caroliniensis).   Unfortunately the sites had been clear-cut several years ago, and no evidence
remained of the plants.   I did some further botanizing, and later encountered a group of wild boars.

As the trail approached upper Loggy Branch, I spied a group of wild hogs/boar in the underbrush:

At first sight, it was difficult to tell if they were bears or boars.

A clear view finally revealed that these were indeed hogs.
