Rithet’s Bog trail hardly ‘monotonous’

Re: Secrets of the bog, News (Feb. 18)

The front page photo on Feb. 18 has the caption “Secrets of the Bog” and describes a photo shoot “on an otherwise monotonous trail along the park’s perimeter.”

That trail in Rithet’s Bog provides the walker with a constant changing view of last year’s plant growth, new emerging vegetation, birds, surrounding trees, the feel of wind and a general exhilaration of spirit at being outside and witnessing  the  season’s change from winter to spring.

The photo shoot may have been entertainment, but to call the trail monotonous is to miss the whole experience of being outdoors in the first place.
