Here's another peek from the vacation in Scotland:
Where I Found a Bog, Or a Peat, and almost Lost my Shoe!
The peaty bog, as I've taken to calling it, was brilliantly colored in reds and yellows and greens and held a whole lot of moisture. At one point I strayed from the path for a different vantage point and delighted in stepping carefully to see how much water I could push out of the moss with my weight. It was pretty fantastic.
