I woke this morning to sunny skies, and I just had to get down to North Glenmore Park and start this beautiful day beside the reservoir! Although I could see the water from the parking lot, I first turned inland to follow a gravel path through some trees. The water would just have to wait, I thought, and besides, it's always good to save the best for last.
But just over a hill and around a bend - voila! - I found water anyways. A storm pond was hidden away in the trees, sparkling in the sunlight. Surrounded by evergreens and bullrushes, it seemed a quaint little sister to the nearby expanses of Glenmore Reservoir. I had to leave the main path to walk around the pond, tiptoeing through the rocks and mud and mosquitos, but I finally made it back to my starting point, intact but now a bit dirty and itchy!
