If you look closely at the 1936 aerial, it appears that the boot consisted of two different wetland forms. The south half looks like it as a typical thicket of small wetland trees and brush. But the north half appears to have been a natural meadow or where grasses were exposed at lower water table elevations and perhaps water during high water table conditions. In the 1936 aerial it looks like portions of the north half meadow had even been mowed (perhaps). This meadow looks similar to the meadow that had developed around Horseshoe Lake, located just 2 miles due south (and a tad east).
