11/30/13 Walden

A cold but mostly sunny day. We got a late start and went to Walden with our friend and her dogs. The dogs enjoyed being out in the woods , as did we. We walked part of the loop trail to the old rail bed and that to the place where it's usually too wet to proceed . Today there was a fair amount of ice but not quite solid enough to support a foray further along the old rail bed. We walked back along the rail bed to a section my friend had not done. Along the way Kelley got into some water along side the path but then had difficulty getting out because of the ice. We also met a nice man with his dog and talked about the end of the rail bed. He also wants to follow it to Forest Ave. We returned using part of the snowmobile trail and a small unnamed trail that took us back to the loop trail. Even though it was only 4 o'clock it seemed as though night was near and the temperature had noticeably dropped. Winter in Maine. I only took a couple of pictures- reluctant to open jacket and take off gloves- and was not happy with them so no pictures today. It was still an enjoyable hike and nice to be out with friends.  2  1/2 hours
