If you'd like to walk on water, you'll find your perfect chance at Philbrick-Cricenti Bog. Formed by arctic plant species that grew across the top of a glacial pond, a living mat of moss and sedge, dwarf spruce and tamarack now floats on 20 feet of murky water. Walking a squishy trail, you can venture out to the middle of this ancient pool, measure the depth of the water, and feel the unmistakable bounce of the mat of a quaking bog.
