Gray and cooler but we headed for Acadia and Little Long Pond. My brother Tom had been to Acadia but had not done this hike which would be of a bit different from yesterday's. We started down the Friends Path to the pond and then made our usual loop with the addition of Eliot Mtn. which Tom wanted to do. I only took a few pictures ( I don't know why) .
When we got to the Jordan Stream section we found the stream was low but Tom declared it pretty anyway. As we were about to get on the Asticou we met a nice man who had just retired from the park service and was out for a walk and we chatted briefly with him.
From the top of Eliot we took the trail down to Harbor Brook and met another hiker- we had never met anyone on that trail before and she was as surprised as we were.
Kelley was happy to be back near the water
We met a couple with three dogs and briefly chatted with them ( another trail on which we seldom encounter anyone) before continuing on out.
Cooler and less sun than yesterday but still a good hike and fun for us to hike with Tom again. 4 1/4 hours
