Return to Pine Swamp

West Cornwall, Connecticut.

Loren and I hiked up to Pine Swamp on the Appalachian Trail in about 8″ of wet snow. No spikes or snowshoes needed but gaiters helped keep us dry. This is always a great place to explore in winter when the chance of encountering Lyme ticks is lessened (but not impossible).

There wasn’t much ice to shoot and the swamp edge was tough to get near for fear of falling in but there’s almost always plenty to shoot in this magnificent place.

The good news is that there was fresh evidence (small trees recently chewed and taken down for food) that beavers are active here again. Last year we thought this large beaver ecosystem was abandoned but in fact, there’s plenty of evidence that it’s being developed again.
