5/29/11 Orono

Gray day but at least not raining. Back to Orono Land Trust property in Orono but starting from a different point. We had a map that showed a trail going from a neighborhood, through woods,crossing a road, and connecting with the trails at U. Maine. The first part of the hike was very wet-almost swamp like-and I almost turned back.But trail conditions improved even though the trail marking did not-tiny sometimes illegible signs or no signs at all at intersections. We enjoyed following the various trails and thought we were not on the trail we had meant to take. When we came to the railroad tracks I realized we were back where we had been on our last hike in this area and continued on to the river and followed that back to where we had started. Kelley had great fun exploring and getting in all the water.


  1. Looks like Kelley is really motoring!

  2. Thanks for looking,penbayman-she really loves the water.

  3. Nice pictures. Can't identify the flowers. Maidenhair fern?

  4. Thanks, John. I don't know the flowers or the fern. Maybe I need some field guides.

  5. Nah, just enjoy them...and share them with us.
