    I think Scottychaos told me about this park. Scot (or anyone else who knows this park), where are some good bogs in Letchworth park? I was thinking of going in the the next couple of weeks, around when the D. rotundifolia should come out, and see S. purpurea flowers.

    Many thanks,

    ooooh i'm not entirely sure, but if you find them, tell me where!!! i'm literally 20 minutes from there. i've hiked the entire Gorge Trail, from the lower falls to the upper, and i can safely say there are no bogs along that trail (the views, however, are AMAZING, and i wouldn't miss it!). believe me, i looked. i *think* the slope of the park goes up as you leave the mt. morris entrance, so any bogs are probably in that lower end.

    here's one view from the Gorge Trail- these are the lower falls, the smallest. there were some wet, albeit shady, areas surrounding these falls but those trails branced off the main trail... worth poking at though.

    If it is possible, maybe the 4 of us could visit Letchworth together and look. Do-able?

    See, I wanted to do that, but my parents aren't too comfortable with me going to places with internet strangers. I thought if maybe my dad comes along, he'll feel better about it, though I dunno how I'd word it to him. (Though, I know you guys well enough to trust you.)

    EDIT: After reading through the old post I made a few months ago, I reread it a few times, and Scot said the bog was south of the park, not in it.

    That may be why she don't trust people from the internet. LOL

    Send me the address of the park and I'll see what I can find for you.

    Quite understandable for parents to be wary of internet folks. When JBL, elegeck, and myself were in the process of formin the Southeast Pennsylvania Carnivorous Plants Society (SEPACPS), it was bestowed to me the responsibility to procure addresses of members and parental permission of teenagers. If your dad is willing come along, that would be great.
