I had a few minutes after a meeting yesterday to walk through a restored wetland in our Platte River Prairies. I didn’t really have any preconceived notion of what I was looking for – I just wanted to explore a site I hadn’t visited for a while. There weren’t many flowers still blooming, but the golds and browns of autumn vegetation were still mixed with quite a bit of green. Recent rains had raised the level of the stream flowing through the site, as well as the groundwater-linked wetlands adjacent to it. I pulled my muck boots on over the decent jeans I’d worn for the meeting and wandered out into the wetland. Here are a few of the photos I got from my brief walk. I hope you enjoy them.
