    The Bog: Fall pics

    So I've gotten a few PM from haters calling me a liar, poacher, etc. as it pertains to my LFS collecting. It basically breaks down to people not believing that the landowner actually mows a path through the bog. Well, it just so happens I took some pics today of the most recently mowed paths, and a couple of the area I paid to conserve during the drosera growing season. The dews are done and gone, so my buddy is wanting to redo that section of his path. Hence, the recent "mass" collecting of LFS before mowing day. So not only am I saving the LFS from the mower, but I'm saving the mower from the LFS. Steve says it clogs up his blades something fierce. So say what you will, I'm doing a couple good deeds by collecting all that I can from the path.

    One of these days I'll get dumb enough to take the zip line out to the bog.



    And as you can see.. the NorthWest end of the bog trail is freshly mowed as of August. And the LFS is already coming back.









    And deeper into the bog, the trail continues. YES,... he mows a cross-country track into his quaking bog!! Why is that so hard to believe?



    A deer bed off to one side of the trail.



    The section of the bog trail I payed to have left alone for a few months. This is the area he asked me to clean the LFS off of prior to his mowing.



    And some pics of what is pouring onto the trail back there.















    And yet another YellowJacket's nest off one side of the "soon to-be" path

    He doesn't want to clear cut the place.. Just have the stuff removed from the trail. Doesn't want it, or want to do it himself.

    There isn't enough demand to clear the whole place
    The sphagnum from the trails would be enough to make some money
    People sell a zip lock bag for 10 bucks
