Orr Bog Walk

While roadtripping around Koochiching County to explore more of our new home area, we made an unplanned detour to Highway 53 just south of Orr. Since we were in the neighborhood, we decided to take a walk on the Orr Bog Walk.

We hit the boardwalk

with bugspray in my pocket, just in case. I'm glad we brought it, as it was quite buggy with lots of mosquitoes.

Because it was so buggy, we did not spend a whole lot of time exploring and did not see any carnivorous plants. We did see some marsh marigold in bloom,

some wild calla,

We also saw a few frogs
on submerged portions of the boardwalk along the Pelican River.

Perhaps we will return at a different time of the year to see what's in bloom.
