2/11/11 Aunty Betty Pond Loop

Another bright beautiful day. We started from the parking lot on Rte 233. All of the roads on this loop had been groomed for the skiers and so provided mostly firm footing with occasional softer spots. We did encounter a few skiers and I then had to put Kelley on her leash because she wanted to run along side them.

Maybe looking for a trail? She usually prefers them to the carriage roads. None of the trails we passed had been used by hikers- lots of deep snow.

The loop took less time than anticipated so we added about 45 minutes on the east side of Eagle Lake. This is one of the few sections of carriage road on which snowmobiles are allowed and their use had made very firm footing. Back on the leash for Kelley as she wanted to run out on the ice and visit the fishermen.

We saw this deer bounding across the frozen lake. Too far away for a picture but when it stopped for a moment, I took one anyway.
