Shadow Lake Bog: Out of this World

Earlier this winter we visited the nearby Shadow Lake Nature Preserve and its ancient sphagnum moss peat bog where it seemed that creatures might emerge from the swamp and prehistoric birds could soar overhead.

And so for this week’s photo challenge I bring you the bog at Shadow Lake Preserve. Ā  It was out of this world.

  1. Nice to see an ancient bog, Susanne. My first wife was a University professor, and her speciality was sphagnum moss!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • Interesting! You probably know more about it than I do! This is 10 minutes from my house, but it was the first time we had visited. I hadn’t even realized there was a bog there. šŸ™‚

  2. Great photos I love places like this the mangroves here give me that eerie mysterious feel…I love it!

    • Yes thanks! Ten minutes away and we only visited it recently for the first time. Small but a very cool walk through the woods and the bog.
