It is the second year in a row that Grafton Pond has lowered its water level 8-10 feet for maintenance on the dam. It enables folks with legs to check out what lies beneath the water surface. There is much muck, rocks, driftwood, and the occasional bottle or Budweiser can. Some areas look like a lunar landscape, while others look like a battlefield. It is all very interesting and worth a look.
We parked at the Grafton Pond dam. It was a brisk day, with the temperature hovering around 28 degrees with a dusting of snow. The ground was partially frozen, which made it easier to walk between the islands.
Our second visit was on a warmer day, and the hints of snow had melted away. We came in on the trail located on the southern tip of the pond and we walked counter-clockwise around the perimeter.
I also brought along my Mamiya 645 medium format film camera. Here are a few images scanned from that roll of film.
We also took a closer look at the dam.
I have taken many images at Grafton Pond over the years, mostly from my kayak. These include the infamous loons and other waterfowl. Please have a look at the collection of my favorites found here.
