A Trip to the Vernal Pool at Douthat State Park

The trip to the vernal pool at Douthat State Park is always a Governor's School favorite.

Wading in the vernal pool muck.

But some would rather risk walking on logs.

And when we're done, we have to clean the gear in a nearby stream.

Today's Critters

The green frogs did not appreciate us disturbing their home.

These tiny frogs were all over the area. As best I can figure, they are immature wood frogs.

Dragonflies were numerous.

Back at DSLCC, a group of us came across a group of goats and dogs from a neighboring farm.
