1/25/14 Marsh Island

Warmer ( 19 degrees) but gray with snow predicted . Other places we checked had, in addition to snow, possible rain and wind advisories were posted so we stayed in the area. We had not been here in awhile and didn't know what trail conditions we would encounter. We found them mostly pretty good, with snow over a mostly firm crust. There were stretches where there had not been much traffic that were a bit rougher but still not bad- and no ice. All of it easy for Kelley. She was disappointed to find the pond she uses near the start frozen over. I found a few things that stood out against the snow.

We walked the trail along the Penobscot to the marshy area

and turned back. As we started back we met another hiker and Kelley was happy to greet him. The snow started on our way back. We also met another man and his dog so Kelley got to greet them too- happy girl. By the time we got back near the car the snow was coming down more heavily

One more picture before we reached the car

A pretty good hike which Kelley seemed to enjoy as she was enthusiastic throughout. 2 hours.

As I write this it is snowing hard and it looks like we already have more than the 2 inches predicted. Very pretty.
