Mud and Sap season
Re-run photos from last year.
The sap is flowing
and mud season is upon us.
Our friends gather sap from our maples and give us a
supply of wonderful Vermont maple syrup.
I heard on the radio, different maple stands actually
have different tasting syrup made from their sap.
Our maples draw from water shedding off the ledges created
by earthly forces many many years ago.
This area once the shore of the Champlain Sea.
Now the lake is fresh water Lake Champlain, miles to the west.
This photo is on google earth.
