A wide, flat-bottomed gorge is the dominant feature at Pan Hollow. Sans GPS, this is not the easiest site to find as there were no markings or signage of any kind on the lonely country road where it is located. Parking on the roadside and walking across a field leads you into the forest and down the slope into the heart of the site. On my first visit here, I was captivated by the flirtations of a pair of common yellowthroats as they flitted about the shrub layer. I always enjoy the large quartzite boulders that litter the forest floor at places like this. I am planning to visit this site in early May next year and hopefully catch peak warbler migration season.
