    Pine Barren Pics - 2009 Trip

    This yearís Pine Barrens trip, like all the other years was a great success. It was fun meeting up with other growers I have not seen in some time.
    The weather was perfect during the days. There was a major thunder storm that hit Saturday night directly overhead the camping area and most likely woke everyone up. If it did not they were dead!

    Here are some pics from the Friday paddle on Goshen Pond.

    Saturday paddle on Pohatong Lake.



    Could this be the crazy Swan Ron was talking about?



    You bet! (Start humming the JAWS theme.)















    First time I’ve see Sphagnum Moss with spores.

    I have not seen Ferns growing in water like this before.





    Sunday Morning we took a paddle on Atsion Lake.

    Iíve never seen small Lilly Pads like this before. They where around the size of a quarter.

    We had a great time - talking, exploring & often marveling at the beauty of the places we visited (when not being hassled by the swan). Here are some more pics:

    An island of 'muck' on Goshen Pond filled with D. intermedia.


    Steve mentioned the ferns growing in water 6-18" deep in several places. Gotta wonder how they got there ...


    Saw these amazing flowers & had to snap a pic...


    Here's another little turtle striking a pose as it soaks up the sun ...


    My wife looking at something beside her boat. I really love the reflections ...


    ... & some more reflections ...


    ... & here's Steve working his way through a bit of a tight spot on one of the creeks we explored...
    All the best,

    WOW, a pic of my whole boat. I'm used to seeing the tip with a pile of rope in the front.
