So as not to repeat myself excessively, I am reducing the amount of description of trails that have already been posted. Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

4/25/15 Perch Pond


Forty and cloudy with rain forecast. We hadn't been here in quite some time because of all the snow. Today the parking lot, as well as most of the trails were clear ( only small patches of snow) .

Kelley was excited because it had been so long that there were lots of new smells. There was also lots of water.

The small pond shown on the map.





Still not looking much like spring


We sometimes  get off track on these trails but today we actually followed the map to the pond.





More swimming ( pictures of Kelley not focused ), an apple snack, and we made the loop back toward the start.

A reminder


We would have liked more sun but it didn't rain and the woods were pleasant. We met three runners, who stopped and gave Kelley some attention, but otherwise had the woods to ourselves.  2  hours

  1. Although it wasn't sunny, at least you didn't get any rain! Hope spring comes for you soon.
