    This is an old trip from back in September 17th 2011, this is an interesting population as most of the plants aren't in the bog but along the lake shore. It requires a drive up to a remote lake, a 1-2km Canoe trip and a 3-4km hike to a different lake. Its not the most spectacular site but worth the visit.

    Open mossy sections filled with seedlings and Drosera

    The actual bog didn't have many plants compared to the lake shore.

    Nice red seedling

    I think this was probably my favourite plant there IMG_2448.JPG A classic example of how many mature plants grow, these are often the largest and most robust plants in many populations as the Sphagnum moss doesn't compete with the plant and it is always wet for them. IMG_2472.JPG
    Drosera rotundifolia (back) with Drosera intermedia (front) IMG_2438.JPG IMG_2439.JPG
    Another classic site in Norther Ontario, a fallen log covered in Drosera intermedia

    I thought you might like them! I’m going through old photos and have weeks worth of photos to post, you’ll die when I post the Grey County trips, most insane purps in Ontario, maybe all of Canada.
