12/1/13 U. Maine Trails
Light snow with rain predicted later. We went to the nearby university trails hoping to get a hike in before the rain (light snow continued and it never did rain)
On a previous hike we had done well following the trails except for the Black Trails, which were confusing. We had previously started from the College Ave. Extension and today started from Stillwater Ave. near the Black Trails to try to sort them out. They were still confusing and we met a couple who also thought them confusing . When they heard Kelley's name they said they had seen our blog. We gave up and headed for the other trails.
The light snow made even the road in pretty
I like how the snow isolates subjects.
Another pretty trail
We also got off on some unmarked trails but soon backtracked as there was a lot of water and we also ended up on private property.
Back on track we headed for the river to see how that was in the snow - pretty nice.
And then a little bit different route back. On previous visits here we have only met one or two people total. Today we met several people and several dogs. We met a couple with a black and a yellow lab and so we had all three colors together Even though gray, it was a pretty day because of the snow and no wind. A very pleasant hike 3 hours
