Hiking to a Vernal Pool - sward
The view west from the ridge surprised many of us: this is a part of Holyoke few of us had seen or imaigined!  Note the shiny line of the brook far below (center of photo). It kept sparkling at us as we walked along. In summer with leaves on these trees, we'd never notice that stream.
