My friend, Maureen, asked me the other day if I had ever been to Potato Lake. I promised her I would take some pix to share so she could see it.
It’s been quite some time since I was last there. Last time the small circular lake was surrounded by yellow quacking aspens making the lake aglow. It reminded me of Lockett Meadow with the burst of color on a smaller scale.
Unfortunately, on this visit, I think I could count the aspens, as there were very few left. Most had burned up or fallen down. Such a pity.
In the absence of aspens, a ton of new crawdads have taken up residence. Always fascinating how where one thing falls another rises up.
I see what you mean, still nice though. Not as bright as it had been in the past.
