Gray, windy, rain/snow predicted. We decided to try the carriage roads around Eagle Lake. We started from the north end of the lake and headed south along the east side.
The first section is open to snowmobiles and was well packed and easy walking and also some water for Kelley
Snowmobiles are not allowed beyond intersection 7 and there had been little use between that and # 8 and much deeper snow ( I don't know why ). In the picture above you can see a patch of blue sky but shortly after it began to snow and that was pretty.
Once we got beyond intersection 8 there had been more use and there was less snow and the walking was again easy as we headed north on the west side of the lake .
When we got back to the parking area we continued on to Breakneck Pond to have our lunch and Kelley found more water in a pond along the way. We also met a young couple who were the only people we met on the hike.
