I foraged for wild blueberries, and checked out the Labrador tea (which I thought had an unpleasant smell). Then we followed another trail, which had a deer print along it, so we assume it was a deer trail.

As we went back out of the bog, I joyfully crushed some more logs and stumps (I felt massively strong). The Beast spotted some owl pellets and, separately, the bones of some small animal. And then he gave me a botany lesson: I can now identify bracken fern, lady fern, sword fern, two kinds of blackberries, and salmonberry leaves in addition to all the plants mentioned above.
And I picked and ate blackberries along the way back!
