Spring comes to the Adirondacks

I went South to the mountains today in search of spring color, the myriad of greens, yellows and rust colors that mark the opening of leaf buds. Most of the woods were still brown (the High Peaks still have snow) but the lower elevations, particularly along creeks and around ponds are colorful. Within a week I'm sure the leafed zone will be creeping up the mountain sides.

This photo was taken at Mountain Pond, one of my favorite haunts. I'll be back for more photos in other areas as spring progresses.
