In a quiet corner of the Northeast Kingdom is Flagg Pond, a remote and wild place. Visitors are immediately struck that the shoreline is almost entirely undeveloped. The pond is very shallow with a maximum depth of only 6 feet. The shore consists of mats of grassy wetland and dense forest, the most important of which is the distinctive Northern white cedar swamp. There is a distinct and magical atmosphere within Northern white cedar swamps, with their shaggy cedar trees, soggy understory, sparse herbaceous plant layer and an array of luxuriant mosses and liverworts.
