Cold ( 40's) and more clouds than sun. We entered on the North Trail this time. Kelley seemed excited to be in the woods. I think she likes the cooler temperatures.
A small pond near the start - I got a picture and Kelley a swim.
The woods were pretty even though the predominant color is now brown.
We followed the Spruce Rd. to the Spruce Trail where we had so much trouble the first time we came here- and came in on the Spruce Trail that time . They now have a sign marking the trail but there was still confusion- maybe it's just me. Other than that brief little foray we were able to stay on track.
Kelley was happy when we reached the big pond
We followed the trail next to the pond because there are several places Kelley can get in.
This fungus reminded me of old pottery
The Spruce Road as we headed back to the North Trail
A pretty good hike. Once we got moving the temperature was fine, the woods were pretty, there was water for Kelley, and we had the place to ourselves. 2 1/4 hours
