Day 17 - Hiking the Primeval Swamp
More details and photos later, but just a quick note here that my day 17 was hiking the Beaver Flowage Trail on Holbrook Island Sanctuary. Saw no beavers or any large bodies of water, for that matter. There was plenty of water just beneath the surface of the mossy trail, however. For much of the trail, each step was met with the sinking of the shoes into the ground, to be retracted only with much effort and a giant sucking sound. At one point about half way around, Kathleen and I simply gave up caring about it. I mean, once the shoes and socks are soaked, does it really matter if they get more soaked?
