Gale and I started out our Saturday morning at Cranesville Swamp. This area was totally different then what I was used to seeing. The only other area that I have seen to compare it to is the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
There was almost no water visible, but the ground was saturated. Your feet sunk into the ground.
CP’s that we saw were Drosera intermedia, Drosera rotundifolia, and Sarracenia purpurea.
The Sarracenia purpurea grew much better here then in the Pine Barrens. The Pine Barrens had small plants that where not very big and I never saw any large clumps of plants.
At the Cranesville Swamp the Sarracenia purpurea where in huge clumps of plants. The one clump had to be over 3’ across.
The Cransville Swamp is not all that large and after a few hours we where done looking around. I saw on the internet that a state park nearby, Swallow Falls, which had some nice waterfalls in it.
So we headed over there to check them out. I noticed that there were a few caches in the park and I thought that I might as well look for them while I was here. Gale never cached before and I gave him the coordinates to put into his GPS. He’s hooked. LOL
Here is 1 of the waterfalls:
