This morning was sunny but still a problem of finding a trail with good footing. Decided to check out the area around Franklin again and found the Dynamite Brook and Myrick Pond Roads still not plowed and the hidden ponds parking lot also still covered with snow. Back to Franklin and the Sunrise. We started from the same place as last time but went the other direction- toward Elsworth - a section we had not done.
48 and sunny at the start overcast and 54 at the finish.
Even this trail, which is fairly open,still had patches of snow and ice along with muddy spots.
There was a small sign saying this was Mill Brook - seemed to be well over it's banks
Kelley seemed to be doing well. She liked that there were lots of new scents and there was lots of water along the trail which she took advantage of many times.
Had to try out the macro lens I hadn't been using during our winter hikes
This was not an especially scenic section of the trail but it was easy walking for Kelley and warm enough for shirt sleeves on the way back. 2 1/4 hours
