11/22/14 Little Long Pond

13 degrees when we got up - stalled 'till it got to 25 and headed for Acadia where the weather was supposed to be a bit warmer. It was 35 when we started but dropped to 30 when we finished - mix of sun and clouds.

We started from the parking lot for the Friends Path and soon found this ominous looking tree.

Looking back up the path as we descend to the pond

Kelley was disappointed to find the pond ice covered

But when we reached the start of the Jordan Stream Trail there was running water

The last time we were here the stream was high and much of the trail covered with water. Today it was back within it's banks.

When we got to the Cobblestone Bridge we took the carriage roads  back to go along the east side of the pond.

Walking this side of the pond we usually meet people with dogs -  mostly locals - and we did today , which made Kelley happy. Not a bad little hike- only one spot on the west side that we had to bushwhack around so pretty easy for Kelley.  2  1/2 hours 


  1. Glad Kelley found some water for a swim! In answer to your question, freezing rain is quite common here in the PNW. We usually get 2-3 episodes a winter (if not more) especially in the Columbia River Gorge.

  2. Up to 50 today on the island! What an incredibly beautiful day for hiking, glad you got out!

    1. Thanks for commenting-we enjoyed the nice day today on the Black Mountain Trail - rain tomorrow :(
