A family of Canada geese has much of Crawford Reservoir to itself Sunday morning as the weekend crowds were slow to appear. With plenty of snow still remaining in the high country above the reservoir, the forecast is for the reservoir to fill.

A wealth of water

Abundant snow in high country means more water in reservoirs

CRAWFORD STATE PARK — On a recent Sunday, Canada goose goslings here outnumbered anglers 3-1.
Except for a few fishermen scattered along the bank and a solitary kayaker paddling a canary yellow open-water craft across the choppy water, there was little to disturb the goslings, several of which paddled quietly between the adults bookending them to safety.
The quiet day, being a Sunday, and Easter Sunday at that, probably was but a brief interlude at the reservoir, a popular spot for anglers and campers.
