Cold Creek turtle pond bone dry

Photos by Barry Wallace

For me, summer seemed to start in March of this year and it is still going strong in September.    I don't remember a warm, endless summer like this one.   It's one for the record books, on a number of counts.   But it has taken a toll late in its season.   Many ponds and streams have dried up.   Pictured above is the small turtle pond, just north north of the main pond, at Cold Creek Conservation Area.   It is bone dry and there are no signs of the turtles.   Such is nature.   This too shall pass, and rain and then snow, will surely replenish these fragile places we treasure.
