5/24/14 Paul Bunyan Snowmobile Trail

Mostly cloudy, a little drizzle, and possible showers. Decided to try another snowmobile trail- this one less than 2 miles from home. For the first part it runs along the Kenduskeag Stream.

This part of the trail was in good shape with a few muddy spots and puddles that were easy to get around. The drizzle stopped and we started to get some sun.

A couple of reminders

but there were flowering trees and bushes

Kelley found puddles and small streams but she wanted to get into the Kenduskeag  but the mostly steep banks stopped her. We finally found a spot where she could get down.

An interesting fungus and more blossoms

This one is already finished

One more blossom pic

When we reached the part of the trail across Pushaw Rd. there was a plastic fence but no sign. We went around it and saw a man in a nearby yard- we assumed it was his property ( lots of the trails cross private property) and asked if it was OK to walk the trail and he said, yes. He didn't want ATVs on it while it was wet. This part was wetter and also more open so the trail was harder to discern and will soon be fully overgrown . When we got to Ohio St. there was a wire fence- they really didn't want anyone on the trail so we turned and headed back.

On the way back Kelley found another way down to the stream- I did not follow her down.

Turned out to be a pleasant hike with pretty woods and the stream. 2  1/4  hours
