    Default OT - Trip to the bog.

    I've ridden by this bog for years now... and have wished I had a camera with me almost every time I go by. Sunday I finally did, though I drove (too much beer Saturday night) and took the good camera.

    Funny how sometimes you just kind of give stuff a glance while out on a ride and don't realize what's really there. There's 2 that I know of near our town. They are protected, in one photo you can see a ditch grader that got stuck 2 years ago and the state of Alabama made them leave it because it would cause too much damage to tow it out. Now it's surrounded by pitcher plants and orchids.

    Bogs are cool, carnivorous plants and orchids are cool too. Just thought I'd share.

    I agree, the carnivorous things mess with my mind a little.

    when a Scot refers to a bog you know what I was thinking. :-) " Why would he brag about pix of that?" I wondered.
