Coll. No. 2863, Platanthera huronensis (Nutt.)Lindl.
There is also an unidentified road downslope and to the east northeast between two fencelines. About 475 m to the northeast, up against the northern fenceline is a spring. The stream issuing from that spring is where I found the Platanthera. There is also some old dimension lumber out this road, as though there was some sort of structure at some point.
