12/13/14 Along the Kenduskeag

Another gray morning with possible rain. Overnight we got a little new snow - just enough to cover the icy patches and make the trails more treacherous. Decided to check out a trail we use in winter - it's part of a snowmobile trail and usually has good footing though there hasn't been enough snow for them yet.

We started from the end of Pushaw Rd. and were surprised, again, at how much snow remained. There was very little ice and it looked like an ATV had been the only user.

The Kenduskeag was quite high

There were a lot of low spots with water but they weren't hard to get around. Kelley rests in one while I take a picture

Another view of the stream

and some reeds in the snow

When we reached Griffin Rd. we retraced our steps back to our start. It had been a pretty good outing with only light drizzle. Kelley was enthusiastic - she likes new places or places we haven't been in a long time and there was lots of water for her to get into . 1  1/2 hours 


  1. I'm always amazed at how that dog "rests" sitting in freezing water in the heart of winter. My gosh--I can't imagined my joints if I did that. Glad you had another nice outing. About the only thing that keeps me in the house in winter is wind. We had DENSE fog this morning--what a crazy wonderful day to walk....things just merging in out of the haze. I love that.
    Enjoy the rest of your day

    1. Thanks Sue- she seems immune to cold and loves water
