12/1/14 Little Long Pond

Called the park to check on trail conditions  and was told the snow was mostly gone ( we still had six or seven inches on the ground) but the trails were likely very muddy. Decided we would do the carriage roads around the pond instead. Turned out to be nicer there than at home- mostly sunny and 50's.

The snow was mostly gone, though there were patches of snow in shaded areas.

A nice lichen

Today there was water everywhere beside the roads and Kelley was happy about that.

One of the few views from the carriage road

Until we got to the east side of the pond we had not met any dogs but Kelley did get to greet a crew working to clear storm damage. Once along the east side we did meet a few people and dogs but not as many as would be expected on such a nice day.

and the pond from the south end

One last dip in the pond before we head up the Friends Path to our car.

A nice hike on a beautiful day- there won't be many like this for awhile.  2 hours


  1. Glad you had a nice snow-free day (and Kelley got her swim!)

    1. Thanks Linda - it worked out pretty well

  2. That bottom picture with that terrific blue sky---I love it.
    We haven't seen sunshine in I don't know how long.
    Glad you two had a fine day out.

    1. Thanks Sue- today we also had sun but it was 30 degrees cooler - weird weather continues

  3. These are some wonderful photos, especially when they are clicked to enlarge!!
