We hit the road this morning at a bit after 7am....light was beginning to improve. Crossing over Robert Eastman Rd, it was amazing to see a frozen mist over the surface of the lake. The 45+ degree drop in air temp combined with the lake's warmer temp created a lake effect in essence. As we headed down the slope toward the marina, this is the view we caught....the full moon getting ready to set and hiding behind the clouds of mist over the lake. It was amazing and beautiful!
After driving out of the marina, we saw a couple of bucks battling....we weren't able to get clear shots, but enjoyed watching them!
After following our regular route through the park, we stopped back in the area where we saw the battling bucks earlier, and found the apparent winner spending time with his lady.
He didn't get by without some wounds...note the abraided area on his foreleg, and some blood.
