8/23/11 Jordan Stream - Little Harbor Brook
A perfect hiking day-upper 60's and sunny. We started from the parking lot for Little long Pond and took the Friends Path ( not on the map) to the south end of the pond
Kelley seems to really like Acadia best of the places we hike and was very excited, panting, running ahead of me, and into and out of the water. We followed the trail ( not on the map) that runs along the west side of the pond to the Jordan Stream Trail where we saw this owl.
After crossing under the cobblestone bridge we took the carriage roads to the Asticou and that to Little Harbor Brook > the road and back to our car.
Underside of the bridge
On the carriage road we met a runner ( we had met before) and his dog Keira who was as happy to play as Kelley and they had good fun.
Reflections in Little Harbor Brook
Wildflower hanging out over the brook
This Hydrangea was in a yard we passed as we walked the short section of road back to our car.
