Bear Creek Sedge Meadow (20/674)

Green was the name of the scene on my visit to Bear Creek Sedge Meadow.  This site is is composed of two parcels of land, smaller one is Richland County and a larger parcel just a bit north in Sauk County.  I visited both parcels and found the Richland County portion easier to access due to a moat of water surrounding the Sauk County portion.  Parking is on the road for both parts, though the former is less traveled and safer to park at, in my opinion.  In both cases, the lack of rubber boots precluded an intensive exploration due to the wet conditions.  At first glance, the ground appears solid, but  one’s boots sink in with each step.  I would like to have another look at this place, perhaps in a different season and with boots to get closer to the eponymous Bear Creek, which runs through both sites.  There was not much floristcally to be excited about during this visit aside from the verdant green scenic tones.
