Bena Brook has melted, creating open pools of clear, cold water. Photo credit goes to Gabe Anderson (thank you!).
The spring melt has also created isolated vernal pools where trees have uprooted.
The fungus are thriving in the newfound moisture and relative warmth.
The skunk cabbage are finely up! It looks like they may have come up several weeks ago, based on their nibbled appearance and the leaves that have appeared next to the purple flower.
