9/13/11 Sunkhaze Wildlife Refuge

We first did the hike down Carter Meadow Road-this as a gated service road that goes through some fairly dense woods to a trail ( not shown on this map) that takes you to the observation platform overlooking Sunkhaze Meadows Bog.

Along the way we saw some interesting fungi

Next to the observation platform Kelley found a small pool--she's in there

The view from beside the platform

We returned to our car and drove to the Johnson Brook Trail . The little spur upper right leads to a beaver dam and pool.

Later on the main trail we found more fungi

Some of the bog bridges are in poor repair. Kelley is usually not crazy about these but had no trouble with this one.


  1. Seems like everywhere we walk there are an awful lot of mushroom fungi-thingys growing..more than usual do you think?

  2. Hi penbayman -there do seem to be more of them than usual and lots of different types.
