Ducks on Duck Lake

Again, I’m more than a week behind, but I did get out on the lake during our last trip north.  There were lots of ducks on the water.  Here’s a few examples.

This is a good time to venture up Horton Creek since the weeds are not growing and the water is plenty high.  It was a very calm paddle up stream until I came to the beaver dam.

The dam completely crossed the creek, blocking further progress, and the sound of the water flowing through the dam is impressive.  

There were also a few turtles basking in the sun.

It is always interesting to see the lake and lake shore early in the spring.  It was a sunny day, a bit cool, but quite pleasant, and still I had the entire lake to myself.  I’m certainly willing to share, so come on out and enjoy what the lake has to offer.
