Black flies were present but relatively few. Deer flies controlled the higher elevations and dryer areas. Mosquitoes were constant any time in the woods anywhere near lake level or wetter areas.

A few pics from this week:

The first is usually seen (hopefully) as a single pointed rock to be avoided just below the normal water surface level in the narrows just after leaving the lower dam. it is really the top rock in one of three old timber cribs filled with rocks
The next is a young pitcher plant
The next is a blue flag iris
The next is a view after the portage heading into Grass Pond
Next is the world's shortest portage (about 12 feet) to avoid windy conditions on the main part of Lows
Looking towar my second most favorite Lows campsite on Grass Pond
Middle of Lowss from Grass Pond Mountain summit
Looking wast from GPM
canoes approaching the floating bog from GPM
A very foggy sunrise

My expected normal bushwhack to visit the Tri-County Marker and adjacent unique lands known as "Jurassic Park" was thwarted by ongoing thunder storms, drenching rain, and high winds.

Plenty of Blackflies Today
 
Earlier today I paddled Newcomb Lake end-to-end - blackflies were plentiful - I did not see a single dragonfly.

On the way home, I stopped off for a quick dip at Fox Lair (E Br Sacandaga) - same story.
