This northwest edge of Salisbury Swamp is breeding habitat for the largest known population of four-toed salamanders in Vermont. The species is rare in the state, but thousands of them cross a road here twice a year migrating between the breeding swamp and upland winter habitat.
There is a companion map of NDVI versions of several of these photos: http://publiclaboratory.org/map/salisbury-swamp-ndvi-salisbury-vermont/2012-05-05
