10/25/14 Little Long Pond

Sun! and a bit warmer- 50's . Time for a hike that Kelley really likes. We started from the parking lot that leads to the Friends Path down to the pond and then followed the route shown.

Obligatory shot of the pond

The first section of the hike was a bit wet - all the little streams that had been dry had water - but when we got to the Jordan Stream Trail it got very wet. The trail runs very close to the stream and parts were under water.

Last time we were here the stream was fairly low - today it was not.

When we got to the cobblestone bridge we had our apple and considered our options. We sometimes go across to Harbor Brook and take that back to the road. The stream section today had been a bit stressful for Kelley- she doesn't like some of the bridges and goes around them in the water. She also doesn't like swiftly flowing water so there was a bit of back and forth negotiating some crossings. I decide we would take the easy route and return on the carriage roads.

The pictures, after this point, were ruined by something on the lens ( probably from Kelley shaking herself) - that I didn't detect until later.

The positive  about this side of the pond is that locals walk their dogs on the first section and Kelley gets to meet them. Today, probably because the first nice day in awhile ,  there were lots of people and dogs  ( at one point there were five dogs at once) and this pleased Kelley. Everyone seemed to be in a good mood.

A nice hike on a beautiful day though Kelley seemed a bit gimpy when we got home so we will do something very easy tomorrow.  2  3/4 hours


  1. What a lovely area - love the stream and the bridges.

    We're down in KY this weekend and the temps are in the 80's.

    1. Thanks Kim- I think this is Kelley's favorite hike- lucky you in Kentucky

  2. Anyone reading this blog, you can have new posts sent to you through email via (no relation to this company). I was very proud of myself for figuring this out and I got the new post this morning which made me happy. Now off to hike around Elliot mtn. and probably get very damp. Hugs for Kelley.

    1. Thanks for posting that- I get notification on the blogs I follow from Google but good for those no blogging through Google. Hope you include Harbor Brook. Kelley sends you a sloppy kiss
