1/31/10 Pemetic Mountain

It's been very cold and windy the last few days so we have been doing several short walks a day around home. Today was supposed to be less windy so we went to Acadia. Brilliant sunshine but still cold- about 5 degrees when we started- and more wind than predicted. We parked at Jordan Pond and had to go by the open end of Jordan to get to the Pond Trail. It was so windy ( with deep drifted snow) I almost turned back but Kelley ( who seems to actually like the wind) was excited to be back in the park so we went on. Once we got into the woods and had some protection from the wind it was a beautiful day. The hike up the Southwest Trail of Pemetic is fairly arduous but someone had broken the trail so it was better than expected. There were a couple of spots Kelley didn't like and I had to let her find her own way around them. Once we passed the junction with the Pemetic Trail we were again exposed to the wind and though we made it to the summit we didn't tarry but shared an apple and headed back down. As the Pond Trail nears it's end it crosses the park loop road and we took that back to the parking area rather than face the wind at the end of the pond again. 2 3/4 hours
