Sharon and I took Taffy for a wander last week. The trails in the woods are drying up nicely, and nobody got lost in the mud where the spring melt has been pouring down off the maple hills.
You can certainly see how much water was flowing, though, with some interestingly serious erosion around the small (dry in summer) creek beds. That was thanks to the rainfall that fell into over a foot of snow in the bush in April, causing lake levels to rise precipitously.
We found a wonderful stump covered with artist fungus.
And lots of activity from the pileated woodpeckers.
Looking at this tree, located not far from one of those recently flooded creekbeds, we had to wonder if the woodpecker knew something we did not -- it certainly looked like he was working on creating a dug-out canoe1
