Mud Lake in Summer

Mud Lake in Summer

Snow!

 

Following a day of neat cracking ice rumbling across the lake, today a new light layer of snow.  Water is around all the edge we can see.  The channel to the river looks open as the river seems fully open.  Spring is on the way.  Always hope.

That cracking ice reminded one of whales and or distant thunder.  One direction, then another.  What a day.

Twin Bald Eagles and Great Day

 

Two bald eagles were spotted on the North shore of Mud Lake today.  They have been singly seen flying over before, but now two stopping by.

A great day of melting, but the lake looks still frozen.  Some top water has been appearing and going each day.  Property on the North side has seen significant melting of snow and ice.  The South is more hidden from the bright sun and has more snow in the woods.

We also noticed that the image of Mud Lake has finally been updated in Google Maps.  The image appears to be from last summer, but it is definitely new.  East Fish Hook Trail still is mapped wrong.

Melting Away

 

As the lake shore opens up to grass, the lake is covered in a lot of water tonight.  Nice to take a trek down to the beach, but the wind is stiff from the South.  Geese were over head, but not landing on the thin water surface.  Noisy to be sure.
