4/10/13 Downtown and Walden Park

Yesterday it rained most of the day and we just did a short walk around the neighborhood. We had to go by Sarge's house but he wasn't outside. He did, however, leave a  chew strip in the yard and Kelley got that.

This morning it was more rain. I had to go to the library so during one of the breaks we walked around downtown for a bit.

A bank

The Kenduskeag  Stream runs between concrete banks as it goes through town

After lunch it looked like it was clearing and we quickly made the 3 or 4 mile drive to Walden. It didn't really clear but we got an hours hike in without getting rained on- a little sprinkle near the end - and it was in the 50's and comfortable.

Kelley was just glad to be out in the woods, especially since most of the ice was gone and she was able to get into water in several places

We found some lichens but no signs of spring

until we saw this guy. Kelley got excited but wasn't sure what to make of it and left it in peace.

The next few days have more rain forecast but they are often wrong so we will see what the morning brings.
