    A great pictoral glimpse of the much changed Duck Hole. For those of us who hiked back in to this pond prior to the 2011 hurricane, I am glad the DEC did not materialize with repairs to the dam, besides I doubt the DEC had the resources or money to achieve the same, but a real treat to observe the filled in void of the pond in less than a decade with more evolution to come. The brook trout, those that survived, have found many deep pools all along Cold River. I always wondered if Noah Rhondeau chose his camp location where he did because the stream is so full of brook trout right along side his garbage depot.
