Swamp

Mattatuck Trail, Warren, Connecticut.

 

I took a hike along this new section of the Mattatuck trail that's right in our little town. It crosses this swamp and I had to bushwhack in deep snow closer to this viewpoint through what looked to be a tick-infested jungle of branches to get this shot.

 

Around here Lyme disease is a real worry so going off trail in a place like this is a risk. I thought this shot might be worth the risk but having had Lyme disease I can tell you, it wasn't. I like the shot but Lyme disease is no fun at all and if I had it to do over again, I'd have skipped this off-trail bushwhack.
