Our first hike of the Hiking Spree.
Springfield Bog is a reclaimed open prairie with a trail leading through the tall flowers, winding around through and next to a wooded area, back through the prairie, to a fen you can look across from a new viewing platform, finishing up the 1.6mi loop by way of the open prairie.
Although we picked one of the hottest days of the year to do such an open trail, the breeze was wonderful, the clouds were in peak summer fullness, and the dragonflies and butterflies were filling up on the open flowers. It was sweaty but beautiful.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
