12/30/09 Eagle Lake Loop

This was a 5.8 mile loop around Eagle Lake starting at the parking lot on Rte 233. A beautiful bright clear day but very cold and windy. Wind chills were below zero when we started and the temperature got to 4 degrees by the time we finished. We went in spite of the temperatures because Kelley was tired of the short walks around town the past two days. The park got less snow(about 3 inches)than we did in Bangor so walking was easy. Surprisingly we met several other walkers braving the cold and wind. One couple had two part lab pups and we let them all off leash to play for a bit. This made Kelley very happy. Only took a couple of pictures as it was painful without gloves and the camera protested by beeping madly. 2 hours


  1. The extreme cold makes for no haze, very clear air so you can see forever. Nice views.

  2. Thanks. It was amazingly clear.
