It wasn’t a hidden, unexplored trail, or even a new line of maple syrup, even though we tasted an awesome blend of it with chipotle sauce at Saratoga Olive Oil shop in Burlington. Really-a must try!

Actually, turned out to be a lady. She had a glaze on her, which meant she would berry soon. MAG kept digging around rocks and crevices throughout the many cold streams of Smuggler’s Notch that he could find.  A recent flood washed many fish further south, as exposed tree roots bore witness to that.

Upon research, this lady cray is a Cambarus Bartonii.  Do any of you have much experience with their behavior or breeding habits?  More photos to come, including powerful Fairfax Falls and another crayfish mystery.
