A red Thorpe Park

Thorpe Park goes red

A red Thorpe pond

On the advice of a friend I stopped by Thorpe Park, Deephaven's main park. The pond has turned a brownish- red color. It is an odd rusty hue that I can only guess came from chemicals introduced to control algae during the warmer months. Although the fact that we had almost no rain for the last months of summer and fall could have contributed to the color.

The following shot represents a more normal water level and color from a few years ago.
