American Elm tree at Friendship
This satellite view shows the Dry Pond. It is accessible from a narrow sand road off East Sandy Ridge Road below Friendship.
These are views of the Dry Pond during periods of little rain. Water tends to seep quickly into this shallow sandy basin.
These views are within two days of heavy rain. The black water does not give away the true depth of the basin. You would think this was a typical bog or lake.
