    Thanks for the comments. Glad you have enjoyed them.

    John has a natural occurring bog on his property. He has introduced several non-native plants to his bog.

    For a better view of the bog, check out this link:

    Sir gecko,
    Great pics - as usual! What happened with the hammock?? It gets a little cold for you & you switch over to the tent?? (what a wimp!)

    For anyone willing to make the drive down tomorrow (Sat - 10.24.09), he just sent an announcement that his little viewing / education event is 'on' again. John's place is an incredible treat for anyone interested in CPs & eastern native plants. He's using his personal pond/bog as a showcase for all kinds of plants. Other than maybe ABG, I doubt you'd find a greater variety of eastern North American cp's than at John's. Steve's pics only represent a fraction of what's actually present at the site ... truly a 'must see' place ...
    All the best,
    Ron

    Trust me, I wanted to sleep in my comfortable hammock!
    My sleeping bag would have kept me nice and warm. I took the one that I have slept on snow before and actually was hot.

    This was the problem:

    Rules and Regulations

    1. Chopawamsic Backcountry has eight designated tent camp sites which are identified by a post marker and are accessible from the circuit trail. Please indicate which tent site you wish to use on the permit application.
    2. Tents must be located within twenty feet of the post marker.
    3. Maximum stay is seven consecutive days or 14 days in one calendar year.
    4. Fires of any kind are strictly prohibited.
    5. Trenching, leveling or digging is not permitted in any campsite. Bringing straw, hay, pine boughs or any vegetative materials to any campsite is prohibited. All cooking must be done on camp stoves.
    6. Ropes, clotheslines, tent lines, hammocks and nails are not to be attached to trees or other vegetation.
    7. Swimming and hunting are prohibited.
    8. The following are prohibited in the backcountry: firearms, bow and arrows, weapons of any kind, fireworks and pets.
    9. Camping is limited to groups consisting of four people or less per site in the Chopawamsic Backcountry area. Chopawamsic is not designed for groups. Group camping is available at Turkey Run Ridge Group Campground.



    If I got caught with the hammock I was going to tell them I did not know that..... But they made me read and sign the rules before giving me my site... So it was a good thing that I took the tent, which I had along just in case.
