I got enough material for about a week's worth of posts yesterday. It was that wonderful of a day. And tonight the wood frogs and spring peepers are singing, so life is great.
I forgot to mention yesterday, the water in Sand Creek looked very clear. Unsweetened tea colored clear, as is the custom and water standard here. I had posted last year about my worries that the water was turbid. I wonder if that had anything to do with the drought, if water coming from groundwater is perhaps more turbid than runoff water. Either way, the water looks good this spring.
So life is good here. The trout still aren't biting, neither are the creek chubs or common shiners. But we've been out looking for them, and that's what counts.
