Every summer, we head to the Volo Bog at least once in search of birds and a natural experience. Normally, for some odd reason we head out on the hottest day of the summer and experience the heat and the bugs in full force. This year, it was a pleasant 68° with a refreshing breeze at times. Still, the bugs were buzzing and biting even with the bug spray we applied. We've decided the best time to visit the bog just might be January if you don't want to find the bugs. The peacefulness of the area is vanishing as more car traffic and housing developments encroach on the area.
On a side note, new signs now welcome dogs on the main trail with pretty blue pooper scooper bags. In the past, it was a no dogs permitted preserve area. Maybe next time, The Wonderdog will join us.... in January when the only thing flying will be the snow.
