1/4/13 Newport Dover-Foxcroft-Rail Trail

Mostly cloudy but not as cold. Kelley was due for one of her shots and the vet is in Newport ( a little over 30 miles) . Usually when we visit the vet we do a hike on the nearby rail trail. It is about 27 miles from Newport to Dover-Foxcroft and we just do a portion ( we also have hiked it from the other end).  It is easy walking summer and winter and  today it looked like it had been groomed.

Sections of the trail pass close to Sebasticook Lake

Kelley was quite happy with this trail and usually trotting along ahead of me with only brief forays off the trail as the snow is still quite deep.  These are some other things we saw.

Even though it was warmer than yesterday it took me longer to warm up ( damper?) but it was a pleasant outing and we moved along at a brisker than normal pace because of the excellent footing.  2  1/4 hours
