10/3/12 Sunkhaze

Overcast to start the day so we thought the light might be good ( not contrasty) for a picture of Kelley on the new memorial bench at Sunkhaze. By the time we got there the sun was out and we got the light we didn't want but proceeded  anyway starting on the trail that led through the cedar swamp.

The new memorial bench

We then took the Birch Grove spur as far as we could- this trail starts out well but becomes less clear as you proceed and eventually just peters out.

Back on the main trail - this bridge had become warped by the weather and Kelley decided to walk along side it.

We then took the trail to the beaver pond so Kelley could have a good swim. There was also water in pools along the trail and I got these reflections. Kelley helped with the first by jumping in and disturbing the mirror smooth surface.

 On the drive back on County Road we crossed this river and I stopped and walked back to the bridge to get a picture each direction.

A nice two hour easy hike. Kelley was happy with all the water.


  1. Your last two photos are stunning! Not much fall color here yet.

  2. Thanks Linda - just starting here- at Acadia a couple of days ago there was very little.

  3. Good picture of Kelley on the bench. These trails look very inviting.
