On the Lowland Trail
A fallen tree, one of many, caught my eye while walking the Lowland Trail. Just off the pathway, the ground becomes a mix of mud, skunk cabbage and patches of grass.
En Route to the Bog
The early portion of the Bog Trail covers the same terrain as the Lowland Trail. Above are some early spring flowers as a local raccoon might see them.
