  1. Logging Roads and a circumnavigation of Black Pond

    I wouldn't really bother with the report were it not for the pond, which was a last minute decision I made. I'm sure others have tossed up photos here or elsewhere (Steve seeming to be a certainty!)....

    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, I noticed last weekend's rain, though not a huge amount, barely dented the E. Branch river gage. Likewise with this storm (currently at 124 cfs) so far, so lots of soaking in vs. running off.

    I think Tim is closer to it than I. :-) The rocks would make sense in an alpine zone as you'd want something fairly uniform for supports without searching all over the alpine zone for them.
