There were alligators lurking just below the surface, but I had to know if there were any deep spots. I was actually on an overnight backpacking trip. I have hiked past this pond before, but I’ve never noticed any pools of mud. I suspect the damn was compromised in the storm so the pond has been able to drain.
I just got back, today, and I’m pretty beat, so I’ll let the pictures and video do the talking for me.
