2/2/13 Marsh Island
Cold ( 11 degrees) but sunny with little wind. We started from Hillside St. and as is often the case, were not able to follow the map ( there are many trails not on the map and few trail markers). We ended up in peoples back yards and a new road with house where Kelley briefly got to play with another dog. Eventually we came across a familiar trail that took us to the river and we walked along it for a short while before turning back. On the way back we had the same problem and eventually just bushwhacked out to Penobscot St. where Kelley met two more dogs. After a short while on Penobscot we cut across and picked up the trail back to where we had parked. Though a little frustrating a pretty good 2 hour outing. There were lots of patches of ice on the trails so rather than looking around me I was often watching where I stepped.
