Description:
Vegetation growing in from the edges of this pond has lessened the water surface area over the 29-year period captured in this photo pair. In the 2005 photo, you can see that vegetation cut off a portion of the lake creating a small isolated pond. Tree cover has also increased in the area around the pond edges.
