You Make My Bog Quake

On Sunday, Derrick and I rode our bikes around Minneapolis for a three hour tour.

The first stop was the Quaking Bog at Theo Wirth park.

I’d never been so it was an adventure.

It’s a peat bog that has formed in a depression filled naturally only by rainwater/runoff. No springs or streams. And the vegetation has formed a surface layer that moves if you try to walk on it.

Hence the “quaking”.

It’s actually a unique micro habitat of interesting plants, tamarack trees and stuff. And it is very squishy.

You walk through it on these floating dock walkways and the brackish water is always seeping through.

All over were these false calla plants:

And sphagnum moss:

And rushes and lots of other plants:

After the Quaking Bog, we rode around the trails– some very steep– and eventually made our way to the lakes.

It was a good, albeit long bike ride. We were both pretty tuckered out afterward.

Far to tuckered to go drillin’ for peat.
