Top Down Image of Big Run Bog

This photo shows Big Run Bog in Tucker County, West Virginia on the Monongahela National Forest. On the left hand side you can see a large beaver dam that is decades old. The bog has such a high concentration of red sphagnum moss and purple pitcher plants that it shows a red hue in parts of the image.
