The research team was up bright and early to explore some bogs and take core samples. We stuck together and decided to take a break half way to the site. After lunch, excited to get back out into the field and visit our site, a communication breakdown occurred (naturally in a large group) and half of the group ended up going in separate directions.
Although, we went in separate directions we received valuable information about how various this particular bog is. Birds from robins to cranes were spotted and heard. Plants from ancient Lycopodium to Black Spruce grew dense and rich within the bog. Even some frogs were spotted leaping along. Today tested our physical and mental abilities to work in a group under precarious conditions. We eventually found each other again and reported things each of us observed.
