[vermont] Eshqua Bog Natural Area

Took a quick trip to Woodstock to check out the blooming Showy Lady's Slippers at Eshqua Bog Natural Area:

It's a nice little spot and handicap accessible. It was a beautiful day- perfect for the first day of summer:

The boardwalk isn't too long- the trail does extend into the woods and loops back around but I didn't have time. I just came to take pictures of the rare orchids:

The really do look like adorable pink slippers with white ribbons you can tie around your ankles:

I should take a look around the marsh/bog areas around my house and see if there are any... probably not but I can dream.

I returned home via Pomfret so I could stop by Cloudland Farm and buy all the meats. I got some ground beef, chorizo, beer brats and a large bone-in, maple cured ham. Oh the things I'm going to make with that ham.
