Pockets of precipitation drain to low spots along old roads long since abandoned by wagons and logging trucks. In a few short weeks, amorous wood frogs will gather in these puddles to do what wood frogs do. Afterward, egg masses will fill puddles like clouds of jelly, tiny tadpoles locked inside. Today, though, tannin-tinged water shows little movement beyond the reflected sway of a pine tree overhead. 2018 has been a damp year for the Jocassee Gorges, with one hundred and twenty three inches of rain recorded since January 1. Over ten feet of rain in this temperate rainforest, with a couple of weeks to go before a new year resets the measure. The ground is fat and squishy with moisture. Good for the frogs!  ~K
