Going to be hot so we headed for Franklin where it's predicted to be 5 degrees cooler. This morning Kelley seemed eager to hike and showed no sign of problems. There were also zero deer Flies !! I chose a shorter route than we usually do - aiming for an hour and a half.
A small stream near the start of the hike
Our first pond was Salmon - the light colored streaks are sunken trees
Kelley didn't like the bank there so we took the loop
to the side of Salmon where she did get in
A little ways off the trail
Little Long Pond - Kelley was able to get into the water here too but I missed getting a picture
Some bunchberries on the way back
A nice hike but glad we started early as it got to 88 degrees later in the day. Kelley did well and I got the time right 1 1/2 hours.
