The scenery was beautiful.
Cranberries grew in two of the bogs.
Here is something interesting, the bogs are the sole places to find the only carnivorous plants that grow in Ohio:
I don't know what this one is called, but it's not very big - those round-ish parts with the sticky, bug-trapping hairs are only about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in diameter:
And there were pitcher plants there too. They fill with water. Bugs get trapped in the water and can't get out because of the fine hairs on the plant which all point back down toward the water. The bugs decompose in the water and the plant absorbs the nutrients:
Here are some pitcher plants nestled with some sphagnum moss and other greenery:
Another shot with pitcher plants, sphagnum moss, and other bog plants:
When we were finished searching for the last of the blueberries along the path at our final bog, we walked a mossy carpet back to where we had parked the car.
Some of the things we saw today are at the southernmost reach of their habitat and are not found elsewhere in Ohio. The unique environment has preserved a special little world of plants and animals. We had lots of fun visiting those worlds today.
