Triangle Lake Part 1 of 2

The Triangle Lake Bog run by the ODNR is a wonderful bog with a kettle lake. It is near Ravenna, Ohio and run by the ODNR. I am lucky to have two bog areas near home. Tom of Ohio Nature suggested I visit it for a special dragonfly. Here is a description of the kettle lake bog. You can't fish the bog but you can enjoy the beauty.
I used a special feature on my Canon to stitch together the Triangle lake from 4 photos. I will share the flora in this first part. you can see how it got its name from the shape.


The start has a black raspberry area which I'm sure the birds enjoy.
The path starts out through a very green path with an overhead canopy.
You then reach a plastic lumber walkway which you must stay upon.
You then have a section that takes you out onto the lake, the vegetation leaves a view of the lake.
The Tamarack trees are around the lake.
This is an arrowhead plant which is along the walkway.
These Large Cranberry plants are throughout.
This wild flower is very nice.
This flower is completely unknown to me but so interesting on the end of a stem.
These white ball shape flower (Buttonbush) was not only great looking, it did attract bees. If anyone knows the correct names I will add them.

That's gorgeous, Fishing Guy. We have a kettle bog near here. The water is so deep and cool. It's like stepping back into another age. So good to see these places protected.

Thanks for the lovely tour. I wish I knew the names of those wildflowers.

Hallo fishing guy, thanks for coming to my blog and leaving your nice comment on my wild buebells...
Thank you for showing us Triangle Lake Bog. It is very interesting and also beautiful, and I love this green tunnel path most!
Also interesting to learn about kettle lakes! And I hope that I will be able to put 4 pictures together once.
I often enjoy a beautiful view and do not know how to get it on one picture...
Have a nice day!

Having a fun time on this tour. Ahh before I go one step further though, do I need bug spray?

Cool - that's pretty much like it looks in my favorite state park!
Can't help you on the ID's - the only thing I know is the last one - the Button bush...
Cheers, Klaus

Nice tour fishing guy - I too like the 'plastic' path pic. It reminds me of being in a tree house.
See you tomorrow for part two.

This looks the kind of place I'd spend plenty of time..

Great photos! I love bogs--they're amazing places with plants you just won't find anywhere else. The unknown flower is a northern pitcher plant that has shed its petals. Thanks for the tour!
