7/14/15 Little Long Pond

Still hot here but the forecast is for ten degrees cooler at the park. We started from the upper parking lot and did the route we do most often.

The little stream near the parking lot had no water but we were soon down to the pond.

In the meadow along the west side were some wildflowers

And the water was right there for Kelley

The water lilies are finally blooming

It was sunny when we left home but on the island we had clouds and fog.

The water in  Jordan Stream was low

After an apple break at the cobblestone bridge we went down the east side of the pond. We met lots of people and dogs and this made Kelley happy. She also had more chances to get in the pond

Another Rosa rugosa

Near the bottom of the pond it looked like the weather might clear

Two more water lilies

A nice hike with comfortable temps, and for Kelley, lots of water, people, and dogs. 2  1/2 hours 


  1. Lovely flower pics! Those water lilies are gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Linda - late but lots of them now.

  2. Ditto what Linda said!! Really love the lily shots!
    And the wildflowers are wonderful.
