Breaking the icy trail

Geese taking off from pond

Much to my surprise, when all of the other Canada Geese were flying off the small ice free area of Bassett Creek Pond this week, one stayed behind and diligently broke its own trail through the ice.  I was impressed with its sense of purpose, battling the icy water.  It simply stuck its neck out and flapped its big webbed feet to gradually make its way across the pond, leaving a trail behind. 

Earlier this fall I had a blog entry about the need for people to blaze new trails.  This goose was a shining example for us all!
