    Visit to Chickering Bog, VT in July

    Hi everybody,

    I was able to visit Chickering Bog near Montpelier, VT in July. Great place! Tricky to get to, directions are http://www.nature.org/wherewework/no...es/art434.html.

    Its about 1 mile in to the bog itself. You would never know it though. The hike starts up a hill and is somewhat meandering, but scenic when it passes through some wet areas. Here's the start:



    When we finally made it to the bog, it was quite beautiful. Technically, its a fen, but c'est la vie. The boardwalk juts out about 50 feet into the bog:



    There are plenty of S. Purpurea Purpureas around. Here's one rosette:



    And an all green form:



    And finally a closeup of D. Rotundifolia:



    Enjoy!
    Jeremy

    Very nice.

    I, for one would love to see CP's in the wild.

    Nice pictures. The boardwalk reminds me of a eagle scout project I worked on, except better done! Thanks for sharing.
