7/13/13 Little Long Pond
The hot weather has returned. Yesterday we went, with a friend, to Newman Hill. The swarms of deer flies were incredible and I spent the whole two hours of the hike trying to kill the flies attacking Kelley instead of taking pictures. She seemed less bothered then I and enjoyed getting in the ponds and just being out in the woods. Today the forecast was for more heat so we got an early start for Acadia and Little Long Pond: one of Kelley's favorite hikes because of the water and other dogs. Today the insects were not bad and we beat the hottest part of the day on our 2 1/4 hour hike. We met several people and friendly dogs and there were lots of opportunities for swimming. Unfortunately I was trying some new camera settings and screwed up all of the pictures except this last one.
A pleasant outing in spite of poor documentation.
