16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
A wild flower blooming in the middle of a hiking trail.

Plants that are endemic to specific geographical location have adapted to its climate and other environmental condition like this wild flower. But what’s astounding is it beautifully grew on the middle of the trail where it is vulnerable to being crushed or trampled by hikers like myself. Somehow it miraculously survived and it even bore flowers! Some life lessons on the trail!
