Lots of interesting things to see, from reflections to muskrat dwellings, but the marsh was quiet at this time of year.
Google Maps has recently refreshed its database here in the valley with more up-to-date air photos, so I went back to check out the difference. You can clearly see the re-routed trail and the rebuilt boardwalk, which has stayed dry I should add. But the large pond has changed dramatically! Take a careful look at its shape and size here compared to the fields below and to the older air photo above, and you'll see the difference. A really interesting pattern of dynamic change over long periods of time =; I wish I could get back out and see it.
We're busy here at home preparing for our daughter and her family to visit this week, all the way from B.C. We haven't seen them in well over two years, so we're really looking forward to it, though their nearly vegan diet has Mrs. F.G. challenged. It's still white out, but rising well above freezing today and tomorrow with rain tonight, so who knows if we'll have snow for them to play in. It may be just like the weather out there at this time of year, rainy and cold!
