Return to the Trip Overview

More pitchers:
Another clump of Sarracenia. If you look carefully, you can see the occasional black dot of an enraged ant--this mound of Sphagnum moss and its pitcher plants housed a large colony of ants that did not like our being there. It took a while for them to calm down and (mostly) return underground.

For the record, this and the previous photograph were taken at the Christian campground.
