4/27/13 Sunkhaze Meadows Refuge

Another beautiful day. Thought Kelley could use something easy after yesterday and I need time for garden work so it's nearby Sunkhaze. Plan was to do the Oak Point Trail and then Johnson Brook. We parked at the end of an old woods road just past the Oak Point trail head but  Kelley insisted we go up that road instead of the trail - two huge boulders bar vehicles and it wasn't posted so she got her way.

Turned out to be road and woods and little else, though quite pleasant on this lovely day. On softer parts we could see evidence of vehicles in the not too distant past- apparently from the other end.

Still little evidence of new spring growth

We continued walking for 45 minutes. Kelley seemed happy with her choice- she always like new places and she found a few small pools of water to get into.

When  we came to a 'T' with roads going left and right and looking much the same we turned back the way we had come.

We drove the short distance to Johnson Brook so Kelley could have a swim in the beaver pond.

A very pleasant and relaxing outing  2  1/4 hours


  1. The Johnson Brook picture looks very familar! Just back from the West and eager to see the Sunkhaze again!

  2. Hi Faith- thanks for visiting and commenting. That was a long vacation.
