Moon Lake pitcher plants

We found a wealth of pitcher plants (Sarracenia purpurea) on a recent hike to Moon Lake, in the Wolf Lake state forest in Hermon. I don't know that they are particularly rare, but I have seen more of them this summer than any other time. These were on a bog like point and there were quite a few "patches" to be seen.
