Ghostly forest

Yesterday we ventured into new territory with the canoe: Monksville Reservoir, which is only a few miles from home. I’ve long been fascinated by the standing dead forest that came into existence when the land was flooded and the reservoir made in the early 1980s.

I took photos last fall from the far shore and I can’t wait for the changing colors this year now that we can get closer with the canoe.

We paddled into the eerie, weathered forest.

At times the trees seemed to reach out for our canoe (or maybe it was my overactive imagination!). The moon was still visible: can you spot it?

The slight breeze made for some interesting reflections.
