I'm not sure where "they" hide all of the rare plants at this nature preserve. It is located in a very urban setting, right beside Highway 96 in Kent County. There is a trail about 1/4 mile long, the water was high and the brush thick. So we didn't explore much.
We did meet this guy along the path.
Next on to Saul Lake Bog Nature Preserve! This is one of our favorites places (we have many favorites). It is a bit hard to find if you don't have the address.
Right off we spied Wild Lupine, of course we knew it was here, we have been here before.
The bog with clouds then out came the sun.

We did see Buckbean (Menyanthes trifoliata) blooming which we have looked for but it was flowering farther out on the bog, we couldn't go there.
Swampy area along the trail, good thing we had our boots.
A good day for a walk at the bog then a pleasant drive home.
