12/12/09 Amphitheatre Loop and a bit of Hadlock Pond

Another cold ( started in the teens and got to the low 20's)and windy but sunny day. I had been dreading winter a bit, thinking the hiking would be less enjoyable but I'm finding a lot of enjoyment in the differences. Kelley likes it all. The plan was to do just the Amphitheatre Loop but I took a wrong turn at the start and realizing it decide to go on to Upper Hadlock Pond anyway. I took a couple of pictures-Kelley took a look but didn't go in. We returned to our original route and finished in 2 3/4 hours. There were sections of fairly deep snow with a hard crust that made for a workout but mostly it was just beautiful.

  1. Terrific. Nice color, sharp photos; I feel like I'm there seeing it myself (and talking to Kelley). (Thanks for the larger maps - I miss your narrative.)

  2. Thanks--you jumped the gun-the narrative is now in place.
