    Awesome stuff! I actually didn't know there were large beaches like that on the Great Lakes (I've never been to that part of the country). The pitcher plants in particular are amazing, I love the variation in color.

    It was weird to see these HUGE specimens that were almost completely green except the veining, but they were all really shaded. For the most part any that were exposed to the sun and in areas more void of other vegetation they were red.

    But yeah there were some plants with differences just own their own leaves.

    LOL, well I am about 5 hours away just from the bridge. The last time I went downstate was when I was like 5 years old for wedding. I haven't been past Marquette, basically, since I started school up here.

    Great looking purps! It's funny how much the light affects their coloration.
