During our trip, I thought that it was really cool to see and experience what I read about as a young child. I never thought once that I would ever see a carnivorous plant in the ~wild~ and never in the winter. Although I think I would have enjoyed it in warmer months so I could see more vegetation and experience the rest of the ~wilderness~. I also thought it was interesting that people who manage the bog were cutting poison sumac that was nowhere near the boardwalk, which I thought the whole point of cutting them was for human benefit, but what is the benefit if they are not reachable to humans? Just some food for thought.
