7/20/10 Eagle Lake - Conners Nubble - N. Bubble
This was a loop with lots of variety. We started from Bubble Pond parking and walked a short distance on the carriage road to get to the Eagle Lake Trail. Kelley likes this one because much of the time you are close to the water. Parts of it consist of huge boulders that are usually a problem for Kelley but today she solved them all herself, once even entering the water to swim around a spot she didn't want to climb over.

The N. Bubble Trail starts from the Eagle Lake Trail and rises to Conners Nubble with good views, including the lake.
The trail then drops down, crosses a carriage road, and begins the climb to N. Bubble.

We continued down to the Jordan Pond Carry Trail and took that back to Eagle Lake. We met some nice people and two nice dogs-a Fox Terrier and a Yellow Lab- which Kelley liked. Near the end of the hike there was a group of about a dozen teen age volunteers working with two park personnel and they all were very attentive to Kelley which made her really happy. A good hike 3-3/4 hours
