The hiking group hiked around Blue Hills Reservation today. It was long. Some of it was across a bog and the trail was reduced to planks. One of our members, concentrating on his footing went smack into a low branch. The planks were wet, some covered with slippery moss, and rotten in various places. Everyone had to focus on their footing. That's what happened. John went smack into a branch that hung just about his forehead level. He also fell back onto me. And if that hadn't happened to him, it would have happened to me because I was right behind him.
One interesting thing we came across, on this hike was a pitcher plant--a carnivorous plant that eats bugs. See it is shaped to trap insects. Once inside, it closes and the liquid will digest the victim.
