    That's great. Beautiful area. So did you see a single cp there at all?

    I've come across a total of one sphagnum bog here in Utah. And it was at 11,200 feet, where the growing season is all of about 2 or 2 months. I had no idea there was such a cold hardy, alpine variety. And it was so thick and lush. I didn't dare tread on it, assuming it was ultra sensitive.

    Ya know, I was really suprised that there weren't any CP's out there. Would throwing some seeds out there really work? Remember, they'd have to be able to survive the Michigan winters..

    NOOOOOOO BIG BIG NOOO NOOO

    Introducing species, even if they are native to your state or zone, can have SEVERE repercussions!
    That bog is a miny ecosystem of it's own, and adding or taking anything away can severely affect it in ways beyond we can imagine, regardless of how much 'planning' or thought is put into it! PLEASE do not add any seeds or other wild life that does not grow there already. Human interference is the last thing nature needs!

    That being said, good luck on your morel hunt and enjoy that marvelous bog

    You da man!

    If you're looking for seeds for your PERSONAL use, I frequently have some and would have no problems sending them your way gratis. Just pleeeeaaaase don't sow them in the wild!

    Yep, that sounds like a false lake bottom. Careful or you'll be up to your neck in it... or stuck under it!

    Yes, definitely a quaking bog. The rolling you feel is the sphagnum mat floating on top of a lake of water. Do not go out there alone. Quaking bogs can be very dangerous places. You can easily fall through the mat.
