Interupted fern (Osmunda claytoniana) in the Eshqua Bog Natural Area, maintained by The Nature Conservancy in Hartland, Vermont.

Just outside of Woodstock, Vermont, is a natural area that has been protected by The Nature Conservancy. It is called Eshqua Bog Natural Area and it is 41 acres with hiking trails that go through the bog area and up the hillside to the forest. I’ve been there many times and the ferns always catch my eye.
