9/9/13 Newman Hill-Hinds

A clear sunny day without a forecast of rain. Forty degrees we we got up but comfortable hiking by the time we got out there. This time we started out the  trail toward the  Caribou Bog but knew we would only go so far, as the bog is wet and has fragile vegetation and used only in winter.

We turned and went back to a short trail that took us to the old rail bed and then completed the ski trail loop. There was lots of water around for Kelley and no bugs but it was breezy and close up photos were difficult. There are still some insects and flowers about.

Don't know what this is but there was a lot of it

Crown Vetch

And a sign of things to come.

A nice 2  1/4 hour hike. We even managed to follow the trail as given on the map.
