With all the rain and melting snow the rivers and brooks are running really high. As a result there are a lot of overflow channels that become vernal pools after a while (this one was still trickling). I'd have liked to back up, but literally just on my heels was another one just like this. Deep, too, 2-3 feet with mushy leaves at the bottom (snapping turtles??). Still, I liked the intense green and the reflection.

So amazingly still and lush. Very tranquil setting WD. Well done.
