Cold gray morning but no new snow. After watching Kelley struggle with deep snow yesterday I decided to return to the easy walking at Dover-Foxcroft and try a different trail. We had done this trail once , a year or two ago and I knew it went through part of the outskirts of the town and wanted to see if we could find a different access point than the Irving. I did find a parking area about 45 minutes into the trail which was after the town and we will try that another day.
Some of the town stuff
Then we got into the woods
There were also some large meadows, making this a quite varied trail We had also passed near a large wood processing area where they were cutting up large trees. We couldn't see much but could hear them.
On the way back I felt we needed at least one plant in the snow
This was better than I anticipated. The section through the edge of town was not as bad as I remembered , the footing was very good, Kelley seemed to enjoy it, and there were pretty woods. 3 hours
