A 8000-year-old raised bog of Ķemeri

I haven’t been doing a lot of trav­el­ing late­ly, but occa­sion­al­ly I go on small road trips across my coun­try. There are plen­ty of things to see and today I made my way to a spe­cial place for a walk. I had luck with the weath­er, though it was rather windy. 

There’s a ~3.7 km long foot­bridge through a small part of the mossy great bog land­scape, twist­ing between small pines and tricky pools of clear but deep water. Unfor­tu­nate­ly I haven’t encoun­tered any local fau­na save for a lone­ly duck ask­ing for some bread from occa­sion­al tourists, though the bog is famous for its assort­ment of birds and plants, and only on my way back I man­aged to see a mas­sive flock of wild geese or some­thing from afar.

The marsh is not far from the sea shore (if dri­ving), so that’s a bonus.

    1. It was my first time vis­it­ing a bog. I agree, dark­ened skies would make for a dra­mat­ic effect, but if it start­ed rain­ing, the foot­bridge is slip­pery when wet. 😀
