we follow sodden grooves
thru till. and exult in the sedge-mat
treading the dew-crystalled mud
cherry lake sedge meadow is certainly more sedge meadow than lake. a delightful trek over glacial till, circumambulating the wetland—sedge meadow, yes, but also a calcareous fen and a bog to the northeast. so much moss, so much fungus. not many birds left—though a solitary chickadee and a crow could be heard at times. worth a trip back in the spring or summer.
thanks to the wisconsin dnr for keeping this land.
