At Sawmill Hill Road in Sterling CT. Trip date is May 2013.
Those are the railings of the small bridge over the marsh outlet.
The entrance to the Ross Marsh Pond launch is unmarked and easy to miss.
Ross Marsh Pond dam.
Water is tumbling out of the outlet dam.
Kayak unloaded just next to the dam.
Just launched on Ross Marsh Pond. It is the first weekend of May 2013, the leaves are just sprouting.
Sparse aquatic vegetation on Ross Marsh Pond this time of the year.
Paddling north, the only way from the southern tip.
This is rightly called a marsh where there are no clear coast lines.
A cluster of turtles.
I think I shall never see, as many turtles on the same lee!
I am guessing that structure there is for duck hunters to wait for their prey.
Continuing northwards . . .
I can see now the north end of the pond.
I have reached the northern end Ross Marsh Pond.
I am starting to turn around.
Looking south at Ross Marsh Pond from the north end.
This scenery should be a lot greener in another 2 or 3 weeks.
The launch (and take out) now in sight.
Landed. I was on the water for 1 hour and some minutes.
