8/29/14 Partridge and Ducktail Ponds

Another beautiful day- sunny, light breeze , 60 degrees when we started and 67 at the end- no deer flies or mosquitoes. Only negative for Kelley was that the several small streams the trail crosses were almost all dry- but, of course, she had the two ponds.

We walked past the trail to Partridge to take the little used trail to the north end of the pond.

Then back to the trail into the south end of the pond

One of many dips in the ponds

Back down the trail and into Ducktail. There was a tent set up at the camp site but no sign  of the campers.

The reeds were quite colorful

After our little lunch we headed back. We met two women coming in and that made Kelley happy. She did well on this hike in spite of her disappointment with the dry streams- she anticipates them and goes ahead when we near one. A very nice hike  2  1/2 hours
