The Tannersville Cranberry Bog is a special place! Since it's a wetland and has such a unique ecosystem there are floating boardwalks to walk on.
It once was a huge glacial lake and because of that is now the home to many unique plants.
It's the lowest boreal bog on the eastern seaboard! The climate inside the bog provides the perfect conditions for plants that would normally be found in colder climates and further north.
This bog is home to some of North America's most beautiful native orchids. I was really hoping to see some but none were in bloom. I was not disappointed though because there were still so many other exotic plants to see.
Like the Pitcher Plant.
This plant is a carnivore! It produces sweet smelling juice which lures unsuspecting insects right into it's mouth. They were mesmerizing.

Although there were still plenty of wild cranberries to be found.
