With all the traveling this year, we were happy to have one evening and have a peaceful walk at the Rookery to listen for spring peepers. I used to think I was a bit of a freak for finding their thundering calls so soothing. I continue to find others who share my absolute love for this ritual of spring.
Despite the near-deafening noise, this is one of the most peaceful places I know to end a day and one of my favorite memories to re-live each spring.
On the way out we ran into a couple sets of parents who were out with their kids and flashlights looking for peepers. It's good to know someone is being groomed to enjoy this beautiful sound every spring.
