My quest today was to go to SeaTac Park and watch for Crows building nests. I got distracted by trying to get to Tubb Lake. This is more a small pond surrounded by bog. It is one of the last true bogs left in the Seattle area and I got fascinated by it when I went blackberry picking last year.
I scored lots of blackberries but got the bejesus scared out of myself by running into homeless people trash. I split so fast, I was huffing & puffing when I got to the main trail and road.
Today, I started out circling the forest/brambles that hide this little lake. I went to the east side thinking I might see it from the high point there. Alas, that wasn’t possible because the brush was so thick. So, what did I do? I went down the trail to see if I could get closer.
Here is a slide show of what I found. Most of it isn’t pretty nor was it really safe. I had my mace in hand most of the time. Even took the safety off at one point. Never saw anyone though but I am sure these poor souls were there.
Lets end on a light note here. Saw this little bunny and he scampered into the brush. Can you see him? Also,this gives you an idea of how dense it is around a bog.
