Last week, I wrote about hiking in all different kinds of snow at Sky Meadows State Park, but spring came this week! I was actually home from work when I wrote last week's post, and we got about 10 inches of super wet and heavy snow. However, the snow did not stick around long with warm night-time temperatures and rain dissolving it quickly. As the snow melted, we saw and are seeing more and more signs of spring.

Males were arching their necks to display their beautiful crest feathers for females.

damp rain with lots of sporophytes
reaching up to disperse the spores.
|The new shelf fungus are deep purple brown.|
|The little creek is full of snow melt. |
I've been looking for salamanders but haven't spotted one yet.
|The melting snow was creating a fog!|
