Took a hike to a hidden pond in Ricketts Glen SP, which is also the source of Bowmans Creek.  I hiked down Mountain Springs Tr in a forest dusted with snow.  I then left the trail and hiked up along the creek to the pond surrounded with blueberry bushes.  On the south shore were pine and hemlock.  The surface was frozen solid so I walked out onto the pond as dead, weathered tree trunks rose above the surface.  The pond is becoming more of a bog, but it was worth seeing.  I hiked a little on the Old Bulldozer Road Tr and found a deep spring with fieldstone walls, it was about 2 feet deep.
