Going to be another hot one. Eventually got to 93 but we started early when it was in the 70's . Lots of deer flies and mosquitoes almost made me give it up but didn't want to take the time to drive elsewhere so we set off.
Lots of sumac around
and Queen Anne's Lace
In a small pond ( not on the map) near the start
We took the short spur to Pine Pond - actually there is a smaller pond next to the larger and Kelley found a way through the high grass and reeds
The old rail bed continues beyond this beaver pond but was flooded and overgrown.
but the pond was available.
There were two groups of geese on Black Pond - this group swam away
while these came closer to check us out
Small pond next to Black - also not on the map
I got this frog while Kelley swam.
Clover in sun against shaded woods
Without the bugs this would have been very nice - still not bad. Kelley did well and there was lots of water for her. We beat the heat and had the place to ourselves 1 3/4 hours
