956 Spring Island

From March 2008...
I headed to the "Back Pond" and the Mac Johnson Wildlife Area. I knew I didn't have much time before the cold frontal rain showers would arrive and I didn't feel like getting soaked to the skin. This snow covered hammock (a local and well-defined elevation of the land) on the south shore was close to the car park and attracted my attention. The park on the northwest shore of the "Back Pond" was visible through the trees. The snow on the hammock was "ripe" and pot marked with age - very ready to melt.

Migrating Canada Geese, grackles and red winged blackbirds supplied the sounds of spring as a musical backdrop to the island.

I was almost done when the rain arrived. I got wet but not too bad. It was a fun morning.
