A Misty Marsh; and A Paddling of Ducks
|I walked over to the salt marsh in Inwood Hill Park today.|
The scene was misty and icy, befitting a fairy tale.
|In the distance, the fog rose from the Hudson and Harlem Rivers, obscuring the Palisades.|
It was near 55 degrees. It was not as cold as it looked.
Several gulls were winter camouflaged on the ice.
|The mallard ducks were there as usual, hanging out on the icy beach at low tide.|
|The hill of Inwood Hill Park declines and falls under the Henry Hudson Bridge.|
The mist rises from the ice.
|Not much snow was left on the ground today, but visitors still needed to watch for icy patches on the pathways around the marsh. |
It was easy to slip while watching the ducks in the mist.
