Picking Cranberries

This beautiful Sunday afternoon drew us out onto the muskeg in search of cranberries.  We found LOTS!
  Last year cranberries were scarce and we hardly got any, but this season they are thick.

 They lay on top of the muskeg like jewels.

We ended up with about 3 cups in a little over an hour of picking.  The day was cool but dry with a little wind - it smelled so good out there.  We also saw:

 A little mushroom in eye-popping orange...

...many other growing things we don't know what they are...

...and lots of water everywhere - you have to wear your boots!
