i wondered the same thing! I could see nothing at all eating those little frogs…despite there being a lot of birds. I was on the lookout for birds and maybe it was just that there was less to hide them, but I swear there were more about than there normally is!
Everything’s different up there now. The water in the creek at slushy meadows tasted like fresh snow-melt, almost. I drank the water from Forsee creek last week and at this time of year, it has a great piney, loamy flavor to it. I remember it being like that at South Fork meadows in summers in years past. There’s also a kind of funky smell in the air most of the way along the trail. Maybe it’s just the absence of the subtle butterscotch in the air from the Ponderosas. Hard to say.
