More Real Every Day


The concept of an early spring gets more real with each passing day.  Here we are midway through February and hearing that maple sap started running as much as 2 weeks ago.   Yesterday on another day where the temperature exceeded 55 degrees F. I got out on the Nashua River at Oxbow NWR in Harvard, MA.  Could real springtime be just around the next bend in the river? 

Headed downriver for 1.7 miles until further passage was blocked by this fallen tree...

Turned about and headed upriver past the railroad bridge...

...which only a few hours earlier had conveyed a 100 plus car freight train across the river.

Plastic trash also having made a downriver journey was gathered up... included 88 nip bottles.
