Most of the leaves have fallen here, and most of the flowers had gone to seed, too.
After the rattlesnake area, the boardwalk passes through sedge meadows where ...even though it looked solid, the naturalist warned us that if you left the boardwalk, you would sink to your waist in the bog.
We did see a couple of deer in the thicket.
One blooming wildflower on the entire trail: my Mom identified it as Marsh Marigold.
I did see two small yellow butterflies in the parking lot on the way out. They were tiny compared to the usual Cloudy or Orange Sulphurs....I will have to take a closer look at those photos when I am home again.
