1000 Acre Swamp

Today I had to stick close to home, so I went to explore the 1000 Acre Swamp area between Edinburg and Lake Desolation. The trails up there are closed for snowmobiles, but there is still plenty of snow to enjoy. Little Hans Creek is much more open than it was when I was there the last time. (Photo 1) I did go back to see the spot where I fell thru the ice a couple of weeks ago. (Photo 2). Much to my complete surprise, I could actually see my lost snowshoe hung up on something under the water. It was about 25 feet downstream from where I fell in. (Photo 3). I couldn't get to it today, but once the snow melts, I'm going to go get it. After all, I know for a fact that water is only knee deep. Afterward, I went back to the trails and wandered, just enjoying the sunshine and warm temps, and watching Spring make it's slow appearance. (Photo 4).

Oh yeah, I saw some moose tracks too. Score!!!

Great photo of the missing snowshoe!

I hope it finds its way home soon.

Looks nice. Glad you had a good trip up there yesterday and that you located your snowshoe. I was near there yesterday along Black Creek, it was a beautiful day to be out!

Gorgeous pic. Yes, it was a beautiful day to be out. I got a sunburn! Next year I will have to explore around Black Creek.
