2/23/13 Glenburn Trails -part 2

Gray day but mild ( around 30) and no wind.  A different section of the trails- we parked by the road a bit down from where we parked yesterday. These trail were wider ( perhaps old woods roads) and provided good footing except for this section of frozen bog.  Easy for Kelley ( even though she normally avoids ice)  and I managed to get across it with dry feet and without falling.

More typical trail

We continued on past Pushaw Road until we came to this sign near the edge of the lake.

Kelley was willing to continue but I was not

We cut across a field to get a good view of the lake. The very tiny figures out on the ice are fishermen.

I intended to do a loop from the end of the trail back to the trail we came in on but could not find the trail- perhaps beyond where we stopped. We walked back to the other end of it- the Charles. A Simpson Memorial Trail- and walked it to where it turned east and then retraced our steps. There had been an area of timber harvesting which marred part of this trail There was another side trail Kelley wanted to do and I thought it might be #8 . It took us to a cul-de-sac at the end of a dirt road. Back to the main trail we met a nice woman and her dog Gracie. We walked most of the way back with them -Kelley enjoyed being with  Gracie and I enjoyed the chat. Took several pictures but difficult to get both dogs in the same frame in any kind of descent pose. 

A  good outing 3  1/4 hours


  1. Only in Maine would a person say 'sunny but mild at 30 degrees'..haha
    Beautiful pictures as always Your snow looks like it's melting fast.
    Spring will be here before you know it!


  2. Hi Julie

    Thanks for your comment. We have had real ups and downs in temperature but are getting new snow ( not much) right now. I wish spring were near but we have a ways to go- last frost date is May 30th
