Winter's grip on the Adirondacks seems to be loosening up. Streams and rivers that were once completely iced over are starting to show open water particular in faster moving sections despite the fact that the woods are still wearing their winter grey.
The smaller brooks are starting to open up as well under the warm late winter sun. The picture above and below is a stream that I visited for the first time this past summer. Small brook trout were found along side the hemlock roots on the left side of the stream (upper shot). I'm looking forward to some more exploring this coming season.
Hang on folks spring is on the move !
