9/14/13 Marsh Island


Finally a day without rain. Yesterday it rained pretty much non stop and we just walked around the neighborhood getting wet. This morning it felt and looked like rain so we picked a nearby spot ( it ended up not raining). We started from Hillside St. and followed the new blue blazes that took us on our usual route except for one small section- we did that on our return. The blazes are helpful on this confusing network of trails- many not on the map.

These are a few things we saw


 These berries and leaves were such an odd color that they did not look real




 I could not get in front of this one and when I tried to nudge it into position it flew off


We followed the trail along the river until it became too wet- for me


We then headed the other way along the river for a ways before turning back. Turned out to be a pretty good 2  1/2 hour hike. Though there were wet spots it was not as bad as i had expected and, of course, Kelley was happy with the water and just being out of the house and in the woods.
