Nature Photography #1: All Bogged Down

April 28, 2008

So on today’s field trip we traveled to a bog in Lewiston, Maine. The best (not so scientific) description I can give to a Bog is when a river and lake flood the land around it. Also moss creates mats over the water so when you on them (almost sinking into the water) you are walking on water. It made for on interesting trip. My feet were completely soaked afterward and my legs were covered in scrapes.

But we got to see some cool things and it was a cool place to go. One of the things we saw was called a pitcher plant. The area is low on nitrogen (I think) so the plants catch animals and collect Nitrogen from that.

So even though it was wet and my feet were cold and soaked by the end and my legs are in scrapped up and covered in scabs it actually was worth the trip and a lot of fun.
