logan creek sna lies on the northern side of clark lake and is dominated by a northern wet-mesic forest. a small prairie buffers the parking lot from the woods.
we had a fun time running thru the beeches and hemlocks, cedars and birches. critters mammalian, amphibian, and reptilian darting off the path ahead of us left and right. one of the board walks was out, and we were losing daylight, so we weren’t able to see the lake, but hopefully we’ll be back some day.
first id of ramps by the flowers.
thanks to the ridges sanctuary for tending this land!
amphibians rustle and pause
reptiles in the evening sun
a grasshopper hanging low
we admire the fungal beech-ring
and slumping birch graveyard,
mourn the absent hemlock
