The photos show different rock formations on the Muskrat Trail. This short trail starts from the parking lot at the Quarry Staging Area, quickly climbs up for a nice bird's eye view of the Main Marsh of the park, and eventually descends down near the Visitor Center in a number of (more than 100) wooden staircases. There are a number of rock formations along the way and especially at the top of this trail where children often play. The rocks are quite intersting; some are colorful because of bright orange and white fungus formation. Some of the rocks have beautiful wavy frozen layers displaying signs of their molten past. It would be nice to know the story of their birth. We have located salamanders under these rocks, resting in the shadow. Once we spotted a fox.
