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. 😀
