A group of seven GMC members paddled up into Little Otter Creek on a beautiful (dry!!!) Wednesday. The trip was made more gorgeous by large amounts of purple flowering pickerel weed and both yellow and white pond lilies, as well as a dozen species of birds. Highlights were an osprey overhead with a 9″ fish in its talons and an immature harrier “dancing” low over the cattails. Some mysterious meteorological event gave us strong winds to battle going in both directions, but we all made it back unscathed.

Participants were Carol and Carol, John, Alberta, Marie, and Val, with trip leader Maeve.
