An Early Winter's Day In Double Trouble State Park

by Patricia A. Miller

There was plenty of parking available at Double Trouble State Park in Bayville on Saturday, one day after the big freeze and snowstorm.

Only a few visitors braved the still-chilly temperatures. Double Trouble glittered in the brief winter sunshine under a cloudless azure sky. Puffs of snow cascaded from the pines and oaks whenever the wind blew.

The century-old cranberry bogs - flooded when the temperatures dipped - were iced over. Flooding the bogs actually protects the delicate cranberry plants.

Double Trouble's trails and historic buildings - once home to dozens of field workers - are showing their age.

The bogs and woods that once rang with the voices of workers are quiet now, save for people walking their dogs or trudging down the snow-choked paths.
