12/6/12 Little Long Pond
Sunny and cold ( about 30 ) with winds that made it feel colder. Most of the hike we were protected by the woods so it was comfortable. We started from the parking lot on Rte. 3 and took the Friends Path down to the pond. Kelley was excited as soon as she was out of the car. This is one of her favorite hikes. As we neared the pond Kelley raced ahead and when I reached her she was with two women and four dogs and was also into the pond. Oh joy! We followed the trail on the west side of the pond to the Jordan Stream Trail
Sunlit water rippling over the rocks.

When we came to the cobblestone bridge we stopped and shared an apple, looking back the way we had come.
From there we took the carriage roads and met Bailey and her owner, who we had met before. Kelley and Bailey play well together and she was, again, very excited. I tried to get pictures of them but it was too fast and furious for me.
We continued on the carriage roads to the Asticou and that to the Harbor Brook which took us back to Rte. 3 and then a short walk up the road to our start. Very pleasant hike - 2 3/4 hours
