Last week we walked a trail right at the edge of a wildlife management area. This is where forest, marsh, and swamp all meet.
Here I can get some perspective about just how large, and diverse, this area is. The start of this trail is from a wooded section. In this one photograph above you can see a little bit of everything.
Once you move along here the wetlands open up, but still have a boundary of woods. I would guess at this point the background woods above are a minimum of a mile (1.5 k) away.
Above is a view down the trail. This is closed off to all but a few ranger vehicles. This is actually an old dike, the right side is also wetlands.
This a long way to the first tree line. How far? At the end of the trail is a small ‘white dot’, enlarge the image for a better view. That dot is actually Ellen who forged ahead while I changed lens. We don’t always stay together since we would duplicate the photographs.
This last image is from down that trail, closer to the ‘dot lady’. Marsh water is seen when you get closer.
Our photographs for the most part are wildlife, but it’s nice to put a face and perspective to where we are while searching for our subjects.
This is an impressive place isn’t it.
