Weeping Knee

weeping knee poison ivy rash

"I grew up on a farm and always played in the woods as a kid and encountered poison ivy. As an adult I enjoy mountain biking, going for nature hikes, camping, hunting, and fishing. I just recently moved to Wisconsin and this is the 2nd time in 2 years that I've unknowingly come into contact with this beastly plant! Thank you so much for the photo quiz! As it's definitely helped me learn how to identify this angry Ivy."

Editor's note: Seeing this, the phrase "weeping knee" came to mind, which has a bit of native American ring to it...
