It’s Tree Frog Hatching Time Again

by updated 2011/06/29

Every year we try to make a short hike up to the top of a table rock near here to see the tree frogs making their way from the top down to the trees. After a wet winter and spring, the top of these table rocks have many vernal pools on them. The tree frogs from the surrounding, lower, woods make their way up to the ponds to breed. Soon there are tadpoles by the millions and then baby frogs by the tens of thousands. The babies need to make a mile or so trip back to the forested slopes where they spend the summer so you have to be very careful when hiking the rocks not to step on them. I have posted photos in the past, but here are a couple more.

Can you find me?
