8/21/13 Little Long Pond

A pretty day- warmer than it's been but still not bad. We did the hike with a friend and her two dogs, Roxie and Gus. From the parking lot above the pond we walked down the Friends Path and then took the West Side and Jordan Stream Trails to the Cobblestone Bridge and then back down the other side on the carriage road.

I had hoped to get some good pictures of the dogs together but that did not happen. The closest I came was Gus and Kelley heading up the trail ahead of us- not much.

Gus and Kelley were usually near us but Roxie was full of energy and all over the place, often surprising us by appearing behind us.

The times Roxie and Gus were together they were too close and I could not get them both in focus at the same time. Here's Gus

In spite of my photographic failings it was a good hike- the dogs got to meet several other dogs and people and there was lots of water. We enjoyed the dogs and the scenery and the pretty day. 3 hours

  1. Just went back to look at this and admire the picture of Roxie, in particular!

    1. Hi Faith- yes Gus has his nose a bit out of focus. Really wanted to get all three in one picture but that may be impossible.
