Snow and snow fleas

Ahhh, Coffee Creek in the snow--we got about 8 inches here. The snow fleas are out and about for the first time in years you can spot them as tiny black specks on top of the snow.

Snow fleas are not really fleas; they don't bite, nor do they make themselves at home on your pet. They are, however, an indicator of water quality. And Coffee Creek's water quality must be good here at the park because the snow fleas are abundant.
