Some fishermen on the pond
I told Faith that the Mansell trail was not steep and didn't have views. It had apparently been awhile and I was wrong on both counts.

Maybe she has treats
Two by Faith- Kelley not cooperating, as usual
In her comment Faith asked where I was, so I added this one that she took- I don't know what I'm doing with my arms but Gus is paying attention.
The climb was steeper than I remembered and there were some work arounds for Kelley but she managed them OK . When we reached the summit we decided to go over to Great Notch and take that trail down. At the notch there was a group of women resting and they liked the dogs and the dogs liked them.

A pretty good hike in spite of change of plans, my misinformation, and the non appearance of sun and warmth that had been forecast . The dogs all got a good work out and we enjoyed the beauty of the woods and views. 3 hours
